Movie Info

Unmade in China follows the experience of a Los Angeles filmmaker who finds himself in Xiamen, China trying to direct a thriller, in Chinese, using a translator. He soon discovers that the old adage of making a film three times - in the writing, shooting, and editing - is in fact the opposite in China, where his film is "unmade" three times - in the writing, shooting, and editing - with each subsequent stage of the process even more excruciating and devastating than the one that came before it.

Home-movie-like document of a disastrous film production offers a few laughs.

A delightful tale of filmmaking woe.

Why does Kofman, who co-directs with Tanner King Barklow, insist upon making the movie mostly about himself? He gets into nearly every frame, often in closeup.

It is surprisingly boring to watch a movie being made, on the set or off, and a beleaguered production is not necessarily an exception.

All of this could be very funny, but while the film does deliver some strong comic turns, far too much time is spent watching an inactive Kofman whining about his lot ...

It's a cautionary tale of sorts, but the story is so strange it is often not clear exactly what it's cautioning us against.

Fun and amusing albeit a little too much navel-gazing and low on insight.

Ultimately, Unmade in China is ultimately less about the experience of making a movie in China than it is a chronicle of one director's wounded ego.

Ugly Americans and not so pretty Chinese dominate this cheesy doc about a cheesy group of L.A. filmmakers trying to make a cheesy film in China with Chinese backing.

A comical account of a year-long, money-burning party which ought to serve as a sobering warning for any equally-na´ve entrepreneurs considering investing in China.

Not even its problematically touristic gaze is enough to derail the fascination of this absurd tale's many nightmarish twists and turns.

Ultimately some fresh and amusing points are made regarding the issues of final cut privilege and film piracy ... if only it were as wholly engaging as its content deserves.

[It] becomes an onsite mouthpiece for a pouting, passive-aggressive filmmaker who desperately needs an outlet.

"Unmade in China" is an entertaining personalized account of a director's hardships attempting to work in China's determinedly hostile filmmaking conditions.
