Movie Info

Chinese visual artist Xu Bing's ambitious debut feature follows an ill-fated romance through a frightening and faceless urban environment, using only closed-circuit surveillance footage. Constructing a fictitious narrative from real-world encounters and frequently spectacular images, Xu turns the story of a young man attempting to relocate his object of desire into a cogent analysis of postmodern identity and digitally mediated communication.

  • A failed experiment.

    August 15, 2017 | Full Review…
  • "Dragonfly Eyes" disappoints with its unsatisfying combination of an ultra-banal narrative told in a formally original way.

  • As I conclude the review, I have to admit I still do not know what to make of "Dragonfly Eyes," but I think that is where its value lies, as a film that will make its audience think, while it also provides a truly original spectacle.

    October 20, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Despite the narrative abstraction and exposed artifice of the film's construction, Xu's creation feels creepily alive-because it is.

    June 3, 2019 | Full Review…
  • A missed opportunity on almost all levels, a gimmick that really should be an avant-garde piece of existentialism that instead never gets off the ground.

    June 3, 2019 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…
  • 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...
