Directed by Edward Yang | 1986

With Cora Miao, Pao-Ming Ku, Wang An

“A masterpiece about Taiwan under the influence of money and globalization”
—The Japan Times

Titan of the Taiwanese New Wave Edward Yang (A Brighter Summer Day, Yi Yi) crafts a mesmerizing, enigmatic thriller about fate, urban existence, and violence, both physical and emotional. On a sunny day in Taipei, shots ring out from an apartment complex and a body lies dead in the streets. In the aftermath of the crime, the lives of seemingly disparate people—including a couple whose marriage is dissolving, a photographer, and a sociopathic young woman—begin to intersect, connected by the shooting and by an insidious prank phone call that will shape the course of their existences. Constructed like a puzzle, The Terrorizers maintains an air of quietly creeping unease as it builds towards its shattering, mind-scrambling denouement.
