Tsai Ming-liang wins Best Director for Stray Dogs at the 50th Golden Horse Awards. The other nominees were Wong Kar-wai, Jia Zhangke, Chung Mong-hong, and Johnnie To.

"I have a very complicated relationship with the Golden Horse Awards. It doesn’t like me very much, and I don’t like it very much because I know this horse runs very fast, but I am used to being slow. Suddenly, I don’t know why… it seems to have slowed down. It makes me want to keep on going."

Having the chance to watch some of Lav Diaz’ films in the theater is an amazing experience that I can only be thankful for.Yesterday was Melancholia. Tomorrow Batang West Side and on the following day Norte, Hangganan ng Kasaysayan, plus two of his shorter films. With some luck I’ll be able to catch Siglo ng Pagluluwal too.
Keeping up with the quality established in their previous films, Inside Llewyn Davis is another offering from those that are some of the finest filmmakers in America; a particularly beautiful offering in the peculiar allegorical-realism branch of film that the Coens have already mastered and practically monopolized by being so good at it.

“Imagine an eye unruled by man-made laws of perspective, an eye unprejudiced by compositional logic, an eye which does not respond to the name of everything but which must know each object encountered in life through an adventure of perception. How many colors are there in a field of grass to the crawling baby unaware of ‘Green’? How many rainbows can light create for the untutored eye? How aware of variations in heat waves can that eye be? Imagine a world alive with incomprehensible objects and shimmering with an endless variety of movement and innumerable gradations of color. Imagine a world before the ‘beginning was the word.” ― Stan Brakhage
