    Crowd Lu (Singer)
    No love, no life
    June 19, 2017 Picked By Pisces See all this editor's picks
    Known for his brand of humor and optimism, Crowd Lu has created a bunch of light-hearted and energetic songs. However, as revealed during an interview in 2016, the sunny singer-songwriter was originally a passive child bullied by his classmates. Hoping to be loved, the little Crowd started to develop his own peculiar sense of humor. Sharing similar sentiments with the unassertive Hwa Jia from his family drama A Boy Named Flora A, the musician beautifully conveys the character's intense yearning for family love in the drama's theme songs He-R and Bin A Tsai. A Taiwanese word meaning "small fish," He-R (Track 1) is a poignant monologue of a lonely man who lives a peaceful life in a new city... [read more]
  • Duckweed (2017) (Blu-ray) (English Subtitled) (Hong Kong Version)
    The growth of Han Han
    June 9, 2017 Picked By Sanwei See all this editor's picks
    When I wrote about superstar writer Han Han's directorial debut The Continent in 2015, I noted that the meandering vagabond road film employing tropes common to his novels was absolutely the film he was meant to make, but that the formula could grow old if he continued to use it for subsequent films. Two years later, his sophomore effort Duckweed came out of the competitive Chinese New Year box-office slot with a gross of over one billion yuan and strong reviews. Han Han will perhaps always write about headstrong young men on a journey of growth, discovery and destruction, but with Duckweed, he's taken that journey in another direction with a different tone. Deng Chao and Eddie Peng serve... [read more]
  • A Silent Voice (Blu-ray) (Normal Edition) (Japan Version)
    A painful journey of redemption and self-discovery

    In November 2016, the case of a 13-year-old Japanese boy being bullied by classmates was revealed. An evacuee from the 2011 nuclear disaster in Fukushima, the young victim was called "germ" at school and beaten by classmates who extorted money from him. However, this case is just the tip of the iceberg. Bullying happens everywhere and it has become a common theme in manga. Dealing with the issues of bullying and disability, Oima Yoshitoki allows audience to listen to the inner voices of both the bullies and their victims in her award-winning manga A Silent Voice, which has been adapted into an anime film by K-On! director Yamada Naoko and studio Kyoto Animation. A Silent Voice is a... [read more]

    The Writer and her City
    May 31, 2017 Picked By Sanwei See all this editor's picks
    The Inspired Island started in 2011 as a series of documentaries about Taiwan literary luminaries directed by new-generation Taiwan filmmakers. For the series' second batch of films, the subjects expanded to include Hong Kong writers Liu Yichang, Ye Si and Xi Xi. While the first two writers are documented by screenwriter Ben Wong who, like most of his Taiwan counterparts, is not an established director, My City about Xi Xi is directed by Fruit Chan. As the only big name director of The Inspired Island series, Chan shows his experience and expertise in one of the series' most engaging and accessible entries. Unlike some other titles in the series, My City resists the limitation of being too... [read more]

    Teaching is one of the most secure careers in Malaysia. As such, many parents hope that their children will become teachers. Director Ryon Lee's (Seventh) parents were no exception. Passionate about movies, Lee insisted in pursuing his dream instead. To show his determination, he left home and spent years developing his filmmaking career. When he learned that his mother was diagnosed with a muscle disease, he suddenly realized that nothing is more important than family. Lee retells these thoughts in the moving drama Show Me Your Love's poignant story of separation and reconciliation. Teacher Daren (Raymond Wong, PTU) left his hometown in Malaysia twenty years ago, and started a new life in... [read more]
