One of those movies that, by slow accretion of detail and bold dramatic vision, disclose the structure and feeling of an entire world.

Yang's film doesn't waste a single second of its four hours, and taken as a whole, reveals a beautiful, intricate, masterful tapestry that is as accomplished in its grand, quiet way as is The Godfather trilogy.
