A twisted farce, a touching character study, a bridge around the world; I love it.

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.

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.
