Wu wu mian

No No Sleep
Tsai Ming-liang
Hongkong, Taiwan 2015
35 min

This is the seventh installment of Tsais another journey with Lee Kang-sheng’s tortoise-like Walker, who was most recently seen in JOURNEY TO THE WEST. This one, however, puts far more focus on its city (Tokyo being the setting this time out), and our time with people is, for the most part, far more sexually charged than anything else seen in the meditative series. From this charge we’re given a mix of serenity and tension that’s almost impossible to find deployed in such careful measures, not to mention with as much cinematographic force. A 35-minute beauty, this is. (Nick Newman)
