Tian bian yi duo yun (Ming-liang Tsai, 2005) aka The Wayward Cloud

The Wayward Cloud (Ming-liang Tsai, 2005)
Rating: 9.5

Tsai utilizes and expands upon all of the profoundly unique aspects of the sequel What Time Is It There, as well as the rest of his oeuvre. The cinematography is the finest I've seen in a Ming-liang Tsai film. The water motif returns, along with musical numbers, comedy, alienation, while the innocence has been exchanged for pornographic sequences, as former street vendor, Kang-sheng Lee, now stars in adult films and is reunites with Shiang-chyi Chen.
