Taiwan film-maker 蔡明亮 Tsai Ming-liang’s porn musical 天邊一朵雲 – The Wayward Cloud opened un-cut though with an adult rating in Taiwan a couple of weeks ago, pulling a hot weekend total of NT$7 million. The film earlier had won a Silver Bear at the Berlin Film Festival for outstanding artistic contribution. But who cares, we just want to see the all-singing all-dancing blow-jobs.
“Some people say I seem to enjoy provoking my audience,”Tsai said in his cluttered studio in a suburb of Taipei.
“To me, being provoked is also a reaction. I want them to respond to my movies. Either they are provoked, moved, feel uncomfortable or relieved,”
“I don’t want them to feel just entertained or relaxed like they watch most movies and don’t even remember which one they saw yesterday,”said Tsai, sitting in front of a giant pink poster featuring the film’s controversial oral sex scene.
