Stray Dogs (Jiao You)
Dir. Tsai Ming-liang. 2013, 138 mins. DCP. With Lee Kang-sheng, Lu Yi-ching, Chen Shiang-chyi. The latest opus from iconoclastic Taiwanese auteur Tsai Ming-liang follows a destitute family as they wander the margins of a subtly surreal, perpetually rain-soaked Taipei in a gritty, dreamlike series of vividly composed tableau shots. Along the way there is an alternately disturbing and darkly comic encounter with a cabbage, a series of enigmatic run-ins with a grocery store clerk intriguingly played by three different actresses—all leading up to the most audacious final shot of the year.
