Eureka's Masters of Cinema unearths EARLY HOU HSIAO-HSIEN (review)

 Before he was voted "Director of the Decade" by a Village Voice and Film Comment poll in the nineties, director Hsiao-Hsien Hou was a hired gun developing his craft through formulaic studio fare and quickly finding his voice, and Eureka's Masters of Cinema collection Early Hou Hsiao-Hsien illustrates the through-line from a fluffy yet technically-nuanced treatment of a romantic comedy to a more episodic and psychologically ambiguous vision.
