  1. Nachtreich's rating of the film The Sandwich Man

    Il primo corto (di Hsiao-Hsien Hou) ☆ e mezzo.

  2. InsertOzuReferencehere's rating of the film The Sandwich Man

    As much as I love Hou, Wan Ren's 'Taste of Apples' segment steals the show.

  3. Algitya's rating of the film The Sandwich Man

  4. joey Noodles's rating of the film The Sandwich Man

    Hou's segment is by a very long way the strongest. The other two by Chuang-Hsiang and Jen just lack any sort of dramatic flair, they exist and they are fine but that's about it. An uneven anthology that slowly decreases in quality, however it is notable as an early sign of a much more mature Hou. 3/5

  5. Brendan's rating of the film The Sandwich Man

    Hou's segment contains many of his later preoccupations and aesthetics of his later masterworks, but it also reflects a time while Hou was still learning to deal with the constraints of his industry, before using those constraints to advance his craft.
