No Maps for These Territories
On an overcast morning in 1999, William Gibson, father of cyberpunk and author of the cult-classic novel Neuromancer, stepped into a limousine and set off on a road trip around North America. The limo was rigged with digital cameras, a computer, a television, a stereo, and a cell phone. Generated entirely by this four-wheeled media machine, No Maps for These Territories is both an account of Gibson’s life and work and a commentary on the world outside the car windows. Here, the man who coined the word "cyberspace" offers a unique perspective on Western culture at the edge of the new millennium, and in the throes of convulsive, tech – driven change.

(au) wrote: This is another one of those very good good movies. I don't know why, but it just never really seems to take that next step to greatness. It almost does with its third act and all its revelations about weeding out police/government corruption, no matter what the cost, in order to ensure that more people are saved under a 'fairer and just' police chief. That stuff was actually really good, to me, but the murder mystery itself, while certainly intriguing, didn't really go to enough interesting places, nor was there really much mystery behind who actually committed these murders. And I think that's a problem in murder mysteries in general, it's just really hard to get me really that invested unless you really subvert the genre tropes or tell a great story. Gone Girl would fit both of those categories, so that's an example. I don't think this film can really be considered a subversive murder mystery, though this one isn't so much of an issue. I've watched many films that play into the established tropes of their particular genre that are still enjoyable, so that's not the problem. The story, to me, just isn't that great. It's good and it definitely keeps intrigued for its duration, but there's an extra element missing. The casting is real good though, Nicholas Tse and Sean Lau have real good chemistry. Sean Lau's performance really is the best part of the film in how understated he actually is. I've seen him in various movies and he's always, to me, been very good. So I can't really complain on that front. Like I said, the story reveals its real intentions in the third act and this is where the film is at its best. I don't wanna spoil anything, but it's not completely unpredictable considering how everything ended up playing out, but this is where the film really shines. I wish they had incorporated more of that in the film, because the third act, while really good, sort of feels like something out of a completely different movie. I'm probably complaining too much, but it is what it is. This is still quite an enjoyable movie, I just had some issues with the presentation of its story. I'd still recommend this if you have Amazon Prime, but it doesn't end up being anything special or memorable.

Good thing that is unexpected, Its not very predictable and I almost loved the fact it was not a revenge movie in the end, because slipping into that would have been so easy. Also the music from Koudlam to Death in Vegas are very good pick. Underrated, almost unknown I suggest you to see this movie right now. Its not gross or splatter, it goes beyond and for once I like that. Just the child ghost, WHY ON EARTH? it was perfect without it.

Which makes sense, since the movie apparently was partially funded by the local tourist department of Taipei. But despite this, and the fact that director Hsiao Ya-chuan has a background in advertising, Taipei Exchanges elevates above the simple film language of the commercial, with it's impeccably clean visuals and neutral mood. Although the story itself is charmingly commonplace, it avoids the usual trappings of genre cinema through it's central theme developed around the idea of a spontaneous exchange economy. The two lead actors, the fair Kwai Lun-Mei and the fiery Zaizai Lin, are also a beautiful match.

(ag) wrote: Crappy effects and a simple straightforward story. But it was fun and entertaining just the same. This film belongs in the 80`s.

(au) wrote: Horrible pelicula. Demasiado clichosa, aburrida. Estahistoria de una persona que logra salir adelante, cuando viene de una cuna humilde, esta muy gastada. Aparte de que, Daddy Yankee no es un buen cantante, pero es un pesimo actor. Perdi mi tiempo en verla y me frustre. No entiendo porque las peliculas puertorrique~nas no pueden hablar de otros temas. Los dialogos son pesimos, las escenas malas y en general, otra peliculita para decir que hacemos "algo". No la recomiendo
