  • It confirms that Wang is perhaps the most important nonfiction filmmaker anywhere in the world.

    January 17, 2019 | Full Review…
  • We are not, as in so many a contemporary documentary, made to merely identify with the position of cameraperson, but are forced to consider and find our own ethical and political positions.

    January 16, 2018 | Full Review…
  • It's not clear that the director quite found what he was looking for.

    January 11, 2018 | Full Review…
  • Wang has an unreal talent for finding precisely the right way to frame candid moments -- and for making reenacted moments appear candid.

    February 14, 2020 | Full Review…
  • Courtisane presents art on its own terms, not only for what it is not.

    January 24, 2019 | Full Review…
  • The latest in a series of documentaries taking up the cause of Chinese workers that incorporates the socialist outlook that the state has abandoned even as it continues to pay lip-service to Karl Marx.
