TERRORIZER, THE (M) (1986) [feature]

Taiwan (MIFF 2008 , Edward Yang Tribute)
Director: Edward Yang

“The film suggests that we all have our ways of ‘terrorizing' each other, and that we'd all like our lives to be as coherent and resolved as fiction. Yang reaches high, and his aim is true.” - Time Out

The compartmentalised nature of urban relationships provides the blueprint upon which the Antonioni-reminiscent Terrorizer unfolds. A series of stories build a stark image of modern Taipei - where small acts of casual betrayal turn lives upside down.
