Critic Reviews for The Hole (Dong)
It's a fascinating combination of reality and the fantastical notion of the ways in which we cope.
The feelings that "The Hole" awakens will be recognizable to anyone, even if no one else could possibly have made it.
Tsai's Kafakaesque existential nightmare turns quarantine into a uniquely harrowing love story, its digressions into abstraction in turn terrifying and rapturous.
With its flashes of humor and music, The Hole is a disturbingly timely depiction of humanity in crisis as well as a reminder that there are always places to find light if you squint hard enough through the gloom.
The Hole is a near-perfect summation of that approach, making something both plaintive and flamboyant out of an odd, small concept that requires little beyond his two favorite actors.
Audience Reviews for The Hole (Dong)
The musical numbers don't always fit organically within the story, but Tsai's bleak idea of a post-apocalyptic Taiwan under constant rain and in maximum literal isolation is a powerful one as he pictures modern disconnected people turning into cockroaches in the middle of garbage.
An epidemic hits Taiwan, people who suffered from the disease become cockroach like in terms of their behaviour. A plumber created a hole in a man's apartment and the man and his neighbour began to suffer from the delusions and hallucinations of the effect of the disease. The hole represented the depression in a socially planned urban environment, everyone fills it with different methods. The hole is also a musical that juxtaposed the depression with cheerful tunes.
like my favorite depression era cinema: bleak as all hell, with musical numbers!!
