Yup, it's definitely fantastic. Maybe Tsai's moodiest film or, at the very least, the one with the least amount of dialogue, even though his films are usually quiet. I think the reason I don't rate it higher is that I think for what Tsai is trying to accomplish he should have waited a little longer. It's beautiful by the 'normal' standards but by Tsai's it's kind of disappointing. It might just be the print but the cinematography doesn't live up to the rest of the film. The colors feel very watered down and not vivid like they are in What Time is it There? It's still a brilliant film, though. Lee Kang-sheng is great, as always, as Hsiao-kang. Yang Kuei-Mei's performance especially in the final scene is amazing.
