despite its length, Yi Yi tbh. That and Brighter Summer Day are reasonably accessible domestic epics, with the latter acting as a sort of period gangland drama / coming of age story. His earlier movies, like Tepei Story and The Terrorizers, lean into a more post-modern Antonioni-esque sorta vibe. I love all of them, but I think Yi Yi is one of those movies everyone should see once.

it's not like ya'll don't have the time now ;)

It is settled then. Recess School's Out is a classic. #bless

I love A Brighter Summer Day better than YiYi. Edward Yang is unmissable, guys.

BTW, just watched The Whistlers (La Gomera), a film by Romanian auteur Corneliu Porumboiu, which premiered in competition in last year's Cannes. I love it, it's massive fun! A different type of noir filmmaking.
