Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
79% The Grandmaster (2013) The Grandmaster is a martial-arts film, whose complicated narrative strategies and ambitious attempt to re-stylize a form that looks to be increasingly moribund, sets it apart from its generic brethren.‐ Cinema Scope

95% Bai ri yan huo (Black Coal, Thin Ice) (2015) It's the darkest shade of noir, replete with dismemberment and sexual violence, though Diao juices it up with a subtly insinuating neon glow, a remarkably daring sense of absurdist humour, and some very witty and stylish flourishes.‐ Cinema Scope

89% Coming Home (2015) In Wang's vision, the past continues to define the present: a life worth living, for Wang, is predicated exactly on the necessity of acknowledging and accounting for past crimes; past traumas, un-repented, can only haunt and pollute the present.‐ Cinema Scope

88% Office (Hua li shang ban zu) (2015) If Hou Hsiao-hsien can make a martial-arts fantasy, then Johnnie To can damn well make a glossy musical. And with Office he has, and it's splendid‐ Cinema Scope

96% Kaili Blues (Lu Bian Ye Can) (2016) The intense blues and greens, the saturated, tangibly thick light and shade of the settings, the impossible visions of twirling, ever-present disco mirror balls, defying space, are conjured into light and sound, and, via poetry, into cinema.‐ Cinema Scope

No Score Yet Ta'ang (2016) Wang is a visual and aural poet. Ta'ang is unforgettable for the sounds and images it leaves burned into our memories.‐ Cinema Scope

100% The Stairs (2016) This documentary approach to filming from the inside gets us far deeper into the complicated reality of drug dependence and recovery than standard television-style docs can reach.‐ Cinema Scope

No Score Yet Yi Lu Shun Feng (2013) Godspeed demonstrates Chung's cinematographic chops, with a typically dazzling sense of colour and provocative off-kilter compositions.‐ Cinema Scope

100% The Cinema Travellers (2016) The film is special, though, in its devotion to something closer to a pure, direct-cinema ethic.‐ Cinema Scope

85% I Am Not Madame Bovary (2016) There are layers of meaning to all of this that are worth working out on your own. All in all it's a surprising and daring (in more ways than one) work from China's best popular filmmaker.‐ Cinema Scope
