About the Movie

Hsiao-kang, a despondent cram school student becomes obsessed with young petty thief Ah-tze, after Ah-tze smashes the rearview mirror of a taxi driven by Hsiao-kang’s father. Hsiao-kang stalks Ah-tze and his buddy Ah-ping as they hang out in the film’s iconic arcade (featuring a telling poster of James Dean on the wall) and other locales around Taipei, and ultimately takes his revenge. Rebels of the Neon God is a remarkably impressive first film that hints at the promise of its director: a talent confirmed by Tsai’s equally stunning second feature, Vive L’Amour (Golden Lion, Venice), and continuing to his most recent film, Stray Dogs.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: In addition to having one of the best titles ever, "Rebels of the Neon God" marks the start of one of modern cinema's great careers. – A.O. Scott, New York Times, Apr 9, 2015

Fresh: A clinical, cool-suspicious dissection of disaffected youth maneuvering Taipei's grimier, noisier corners. – Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times, Jun 11, 2015

Fresh: Rebels of the Neon God inaugurates the filmmaker's multi-movie study of urban alienation not with showoff chops but quiet, enduring compassion. – Jonathan Kiefer, Village Voice, Apr 7, 2015

Fresh: With longing gazes, antic and violent outbursts, and exquisite coincidences set amid his fetish objects-leaky pipes and bloody wounds, fast food and bathroom fixtures-Tsai depicts the city as a spontaneous, sticky, erotic ballet. – Richard Brody, New Yorker, Apr 13, 2015
