Montana Tech Library Auditorium
Description:
CINEMAtech continues with a gripping love story from Hong Kong filmmaker Wong Kar-Wai.

"Powerfully moody." New York Times

"You don't watch this film as much as grab on to it." Houston Chronicle

"A take-no-prisoners movie from one of Hong Kong's most idiosyncratic, shoot-from-the-hip filmmakers that's the very antithesis of sentimental gay love stories." Vice

"Were Kerouac, William Burroughs and Allen Ginsberg alive today, and able to see what Wong has done here ... they'd be thrilled and invigorated." San Francisco Chronicle

Lai and his boyfriend Ho arrive in Argentina from Hong Kong, seeking a better life. Their highly contentious relationship turns abusive and results in numerous break-ups and reconciliations. When Lai befriends another man, Chang, he sees the futility of continuing with the promiscuous Ho. Chang, however, is on his own personal journey and, ultimately, both Lai and Ho find themselves far from home and desperately lonely.

All CINEMAtech events are FREE and OPEN to the PUBLIC. Like our page for future screenings.

Curated and organized by Isabel Sobral Campos and Kristofer J. Petersen-Overton.
