Millennium Mambo

I can't remember when I saw Millennium Mambo exactly, but it must have been some time towards the beginning of my time at college. The movie was bizarre to say the least, the kind of film that you only ever want to see once, but that sticks with you for a long time. The plot wasn't very memorable, but the audio visual experience was definitely unique. The whole movie is driven by a very slow electronic soundtrack and especially the beginning and end sequences stand out on account of the music. Obviously, considering that we're talking about a rather obscure Chinese movie here, the music isn't widely available. I did finally manage to find that song from the film's intro. If you'd like a listen to trippy electronica song called "A Pure Person", click here.
