Critic Reviews for Dead Souls
Beyond just capturing and filing memories, Wang is after how his subjects process their trauma, how they frame the horror of their experiences, and how they've coped with survivors' guilt.
Charting the origins, operations and outcomes of a far-flung Chinese labor camp in the late 1950s/early 1960s, the documentary offers affecting and harrowing accounts from those who survived the gulag.
A powerfully sobering and clear-eyed investigation that justifies its length through the gravity and presence of its testimony.
By the end, viewers will be emotionally broken down, struck by the enormity of the events described; in this way they might touch on the experience of those whose stories it tells.
Wang's film is a vital excavation of history in danger of being eroded away.
