A beautifully shot mind fuck, this Taiwanese psychological thriller about a beautiful actress who tries to fulfill her dream and make it big in the harsh film industry. With a fantastic, subtle role by Wu Kexi, who wrote the film and was inspired by Weinstein’s fall and her own experiences as a young actress. The film caused quite the stir at the Certain Regard competition in Cannes 2019, where it was not considered one of the best, but definitely one of the most stylish and provocative films.
