Rebels of the Neon God

Four youths in Taipei face alienation and existential crisis amidst minor crimes.


Why watch this film?

This is the first feature film of director Tsai Ming-liang, considered one of the greatest exponents of the Second Wave of Taiwanese cinema. 'Rebels of the Neon God' is one of the most powerful cinematic debuts of the decade, a visually poetic exploration of the pessimistic future and existential emptiness of urban youth of its time. It is possibly the most accessible movie in the director's filmography, marked by contemplation, acerbic irony and the anguish of a country undergoing a trembling transformation.
