Tsai Ming-Liang's debut feature is a masterful exploration of urban alienation and sexual malaise, widely regarded as one of the best Taiwanese films of all time. The parallel stories are about teenager Hsiao Kang, who feels stifled living at home with his parents, and petty thief Ah-Tze, the object of the teenager’s obsessive hero-worship. One of the quintessential Taipei films, Rebels of the Neon God captures a transformative moment in the city’s history.
