YesAsia Editorial Description

Tsai Ming Liang is a renowned Taiwanese director whose success alongside contemporaries like Hou Hsiao Hsien and Edward Yang has brought Taiwanese cinema to the forefront of international attention. Tsai's films are often endearingly described as films where nothing seems to happen, yet each film magically conveys a deep, heartfelt, and humane emotion. Ultimately though, Tsai is best known for his unique film style which skillfully blends extreme long takes with a keen eye for staging and frame dimension, allowing the viewer to unobtrusively witness the complex behavior of his lovably obscure characters.

Tsai Ming Liang Collection features three earlier films by this world famous director, namely Rebels of the Neon God (1992), Vive L'Amour (1994), and The River (1997). In Tsai's debut feature, Rebels of the Neon God, Lee Kang Sheng initially established the lovably introverted character known as Hsiao Kang (Lee's real life nickname), who would then reappear in every one of Tsai's feature films. Vive L'Amour sees the disenchanted Hsiao Kang, an unsuccessful salesman, intertwining with other lonely individuals searching for companionship in busy Taipei. The River, shot in Tsai's usual style, explores the controversial themes of incest and homosexuality.

Flawless filmic image Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
There is nothing that can be said about Tsai Ming-Liang that hasn't been said already, so you can explore the story content on your own. This is one of the most pristine, filmic images you will ever encounter on a Blu-ray disc. The clarity is nothing short of reference grade. There is a thick veneer of grain present with no DNR. The colours are well balanced.

I am a senior compositor at Double Negative in London, so you can believe me when I tell you that everything from the black levels to the focus is literally perfect. From a purely artistic point of view, 'Rebels' and 'River' are THE best looking films I have ever seen, even surpassing the likes the duo of Doyle & Wong Kar Wai.

I have no knowledge of audio terminology or technology, so I can only comment on my perception of it. Never once did I pick up on any distortion in the lows, mids or highs. One exception was maybe the scooter sequence in Rebels. Apart from that all audio and dialogue was clear and of a pleasing acoustic range.

I have been collecting world cinema for many years, but I can proudly say that this is the most impressive looking discs I currently own, other than something showy such as Baraka/ Samsara, which can feel like a 70mm tech demo at times. In short, this is pure cinema.
