>Yeah, I paused b/c of the gay romance theme but that film is >absolutely amazing.
It's one of the best dramatizations of exile and loneliness I've seen. Lai's whole thing w/ his pops. Not to mention being stuck in a place so far from home. Makes me appreciate being so near to family and friends.
>Bertolucci himself said that watching >that movie made him want to make films again.
Wow. Where did he say this?
>The thematic >switches from b/w to color are so well-done and the return to >the waterfall metaphor is also amazing...
And the switches from color to color. My first viewing I was a little confused about the spaces. Was it Lai's same apartment? A new one? Was it Ho's own apartment which we never established prior? But, it was the same apartment w/ different colors!
And how the colors expressed the characters emotions and mindstate and seasons....amazing.
>"Days of Being Wild" is also worth mentioning...
I want to see the proper version...Doyle speaks of the green haze that is missing from the R1's.
