Critic Reviews for Ash Is Purest White

All Critics (23) | Top Critics (7)

There's a timeless quality to Qiao and Bin's relationship, to its elemental cycles of loyalty, power, and humiliation.

This is a movie about how time and circumstance conspire to make dazed, restless wanderers of us all.

Ash Is Purest White finds China's most prominent filmmaker wistfully replaying the hits in order to further romanticize some of the fixations that have always dominated his work.

May 14, 2018 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

Jia's filmography has always felt like a kind of continuum, ideas bleeding from one to another. But Ash Is Purest White creates a direct communion with his past work.

A novelistic epic of broken romance.

May 12, 2018 | Full Review…

By the end, the transformation of China is more compelling than Qiao's love for Bin, but watching both unfold over time is continually thought-provoking, given the ephemerality of whole cities, much less love affairs.
