I Don't Want to Sleep Alone

A man nurses a day laborer back to health after he's beaten.


Why watch this film?

After the disturbing musical eccentricities of "The Drift Cloud" (or "The Taste of the Watermelon"), Taiwanese filmmaker Tsai Ming-Liang returns to a more "conventional" drama (or whatever that means for his filmography) with "I Don't Want to Sleep Alone", which features his favorite actor, Lee Kang-sheng, in a dual role. Selected at the 2006 Venice International Film Festival, the movie maintains the contemplative pace and visual repetition typical of the filmmaker, in a new exploration of loneliness and longing for belonging or, at least, being accompanied in the passing of time.
