I've only seen Rebels of the Neon God, and it was really great.

Walker Tsai Ming-liang, 2012

This 20-something minute short is made up of a series of long takes of Lee Kang-sheng (dressed up as some kind of monk) walking extremely slowly. Tsai will set up a long shot and you'll get a bunch of bustling people just making their way across the frame, and then Lee spends a crazy amount of time lifting up each foot and then placing it down, making slow progress. Some shots are all about a bunch of people standing by and watching him do this (this seeming relic in a sea of modernity/fastness). It's kinda amusing, but I guess I don't really get it or maybe there's not much to "get." That said, that one shot with this young idol looking fella on a billboard juxtaposed with Lee's seeming decrepit-like walking made me lol. So that's good.

Right, should've mentioned that. It's streaming here. Legally.
