The Wayward Cloud / I Don't Want to Sleep Alone (NC)

This double bill offers an introduction to Taiwan art-house director Tsai Ming-Liang, though how many new fans they will make here is doubtful.

The Wayward Cloud explores the relationship between two porn stars during a water shortage, and features the most explicit use of a watermelon ever filmed. I Don't Want to Sleep Alone is even more opaque, recounting the tale of a love triangle in Kuala Lumpur. Music interlaces the action, which proceeds mostly without words, expression or, regrettably, interest.
