hong kong new wave in the early 1980's
this is the earliest and most representative hong kong new wave movie. directed by patrick tan, nomad is unfinished and with many questions left behind. screenplay is hesitating and irresolute and structure is broken. but up to now, not a single hong kong movie can be more successful in exploring the hong kong young people's nihilism. for those young people in the movie, youthfulness is for a kind of wasteful consumption, being a growth up is falling down into the hole of nonsense. this kind of relaxed, unconcerned, or even annoying attitude made leslie cheung the new sexual representational speaker for the chinese speaking community.
