Wang and author/screenwriter Paul Auster collaborated on SMOKE. The fruit of their latest writing partnership is this graphic, erotic tale set against the backdrop of Las Vegas. Richard is a computer millionaire who awards himself a break in the desert playground where he meets Florence, a rock drummer who survives as a stripper. Richard offers her a $10,000 deal if she will perform fantasies for him for three nights. No kissing. No intercourse. But will they be able to stick to the rules? Like INTIMACY,Wang’s film explores the relationship between sex, emotion and identity with explicit examples and a cool eye.
