The Puppetmaster (1993), Hou Hsiao-hsien ★★★★★

There is the 140 minute version that is normally sold, and I had the pleasure to watch the 275 minute version from the Hou Hsiao Hsien 13 dvd set. With his unique cinematography, expert story telling, and a story that spans a lifetime, the 4.5+ hours fly by. Three of the films do not have English subtitles, so that leaves 10 to explore. Since I’ve seen Millennium Mambo, and Puppetmaster, that leaves 9 more. Hog heaven.
