Critic Reviews for Ash Is Purest White
Entire passages stretch along at a too-leisurely pace, allowing whatever anger Jia is surely carrying to too frequently cool off. Still, by the film's New Year's Eve-set finale, there's little doubt Jia can create masterful cinematic moments.
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.
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.
