Dragonfly Eyes (2017)
Critic Reviews for Dragonfly Eyes
"Dragonfly Eyes" disappoints with its unsatisfying combination of an ultra-banal narrative told in a formally original way.
Despite the narrative abstraction and exposed artifice of the film's construction, Xu's creation feels creepily alive-because it is.
The result of a massive, years-long project to compile, select, and mould ... Xu's meta-video work comments continuously on its own fakery-a fact evidently lost on most of the trade critics...
Dragonfly Eyes succeeds in moments of unadulterated arthouse sensory overload, especially when Xu zeroes in on quietly beautiful and oddly coloured cityscapes, repetition, symmetrical environments and unintentionally artful framing.
