Good Men, Good Women


Dir. Hou Hsiao-hsien. 1995, 108 mins. New 35mm print. With Annie Shizuka Inoh, Lim Giong. The past is an ominous presence in Good Men, Good Women: While actress Liang Ching is preparing to play in a 1940s-set historical epic called Good Men, Good Women, someone is terrorizing her by faxing her pages from her stolen diary. Her story is criss-crossed by colorful flashbacks to her affair with the now-deceased Ah-wei, as well as black-and-white film-within-a-film scenes in which Liang imagines the movie about the anti-Japanese resistance that she is to appear in. “Evokes a stunning emotional response… a rigorous work of art whose mysteries are worth unraveling.”—Caryn James, The New York Times.
