Sure, it's

Good background on the Feb 28 Massacre, Hou's style, the film's use of
writing and photography, etc.

(By sheer coincidence since I didn't know anything about the second film,
the day I saw "City of Sadness" I also saw Jang Sun-Woo's "A Petal" both
supposedly the first film's to each deal with a traumatic massacre in that
country's recent political history.)
