Critic Reviews for Blind Mountain
It's a harsh portrait of a brutal segment of society, only relieved by an occasional handsome landscape shot (filmed in the Shaanxi province) that makes Bai's plight all the more compelling.
[Director] Li was a documentarian before he switched to feature films with the highly praised 2003 feature Blind Shaft, and it shows in his raw style.
This is a resolutely tough-minded, beautifully crafted film so compelling as to make bearable watching the nearly unbearable.
For the second film in a row, [director] Li excoriates the values of an increasingly market-driven China, where people treat their fellows as products to be exploited, and scramble to get an edge on their 'competitors.'
Even trimmed, the film is a stinging and frightening indictment of mainland China.

Second part of an unofficial trilogy by Yang Li,the shadowy prelude is moving into a lavishing tale of filthy spiritual tone!Should I repeat that?Better watch this exploding torture yourselves,the torment of unfair treatment,aye,where the mountains fear to roar..
