By American standards, the satire is about 50 years behind the times, but even accounting for cultural differences, the comedy is limp and the storytelling so inept as to provoke amazement.
A twisted farce, a touching character study, a bridge around the world; I love it.
Western audiences will have no idea that this is meant to be funny.
Funeral is a wild shot at the sheer gaudiness of both advertising and entertainment, and more often than not, it's right on target.
There's been a glut of movies lately that feature a film within a film, a conceit that is already tiresome enough. But this Chinese-American co-production is so poorly executed, with such a lack of subtlety, it's one of the worst.
A frenetic satire of Hollywood pretension and Chinese capitalism -- an idea as incongruous as a Woody Allen romp about the wacky world of collective farming.
Much of this is way over the top, irritating and entertaining in equal measure.
Problematic but passably enjoyable, the appeal of Big Shot's Funeral may be more a matter of taste than quality.
Fast disintegrates into a series of semi-coherent scenes.
Displays so little sense of style or character that it feels patched together, as if it's being made up as it goes along.
Before losing its way in the second half, Feng Xiaogang's culture-clash comedy is a ribald parody of commercialism and the invisible line that separates personal integrity from 'selling out' opportunism.
