First Glance: “Tigertail”


As an unashamed cinephile it’s good to know that even during a global pandemic interesting movies are still coming out. Of course, movie postponements pale in comparison to the true suffering going on due to the COVID-19 virus. But new movies offer a nice diversion and can even spread a little joy. Who couldn’t use that right now?

“Tigertail” is the feature film directorial debut for Alan Yang and the new trailer is worth a look. It shows a young Taiwanese man who seems to leave the love of his life behind to go to America and start a new life. That decision leaves him with a life full of regret and second-guessing. It took me a couple of watches to understand where the story may be going and now I’m really excited to check it out.

“Tigertail” launches on Netflix April 10th. Check out the trailer below and let me know if you’ll be seeing it r taking a pass.

  1. On my watchlist for sure! Love how Netflix is offering wide distribution for films that we may otherwise never get to see outside of indie film festivals. 🙂
