A remarkable debut that sadly serves as its creator's epitaph, An Elephant Sitting Still offers an uncompromisingly grim yet poignant portrait of life in modern China.

This is not the feel-good film of the year. And yet, the story builds towards a climactic trip to see the mythical elephant in Manzhouli, and old Wang Jin is eager to go along for the ride.
While circumstances are claustrophobic and stifling, Bo's movie seems to balance that with strange and surreal impulses of the heart.
An act of solemn, disciplined and passionate protest.
[I]t's hard to become emotionally invested in someone whose impossible dream is to no longer care, and the sense of yearning that might counterbalance all the hopelessness never truly materializes.
One of the great achievements of recent cinema.
Long and slow, this melancholy Chinese drama offers a bleak but poignant view of life on China's margins.
Influenced by the Hungarian art-house icon Bela Tarr, this powerful indie blew me away.
Epic at 230 minutes, yet deeply intimate in its proximity to its central characters.
...there's also no shortage of beauty-of the mournful, sepulchral variety to be sure, but beauty nonetheless.
An Elephant Sitting Still" heats up to a series of amazingly blunt, cruel confrontations. Hu didn't hold back about the essential selfishness and spiritual emptiness of the world he depicts. But his film isn't nihilistic.
This is a once-in-a-generation film, an epic of defiance against a ruthless society. Honest, sympathetic, incisive, it will stand as a masterpiece of its time.
The film's gritty, mundane agonies come to feel like a series of moral tests with genuinely unpredictable outcomes.
