USP Film Series: Three Times (Zui hao de shi guang)

D.H. Hill Library Auditorium
Tuesday, November 7
6:30 PM
Hou Hsiao-Hsien is an acknowledged master director who is criminally unknown stateside. As Roger Ebert noted in his review of Three Times, between 1980 and 1989, the Taiwanese director released 10 films, seven of which received best film or best director awards at major film festivals. That’s a strong track record. And this film, featuring three stories about a woman and a man, all using the same actors, set in three time periods, keeps the streak alive.
