While Salles' portrait gives a very incomplete account of the man and his art, it pays tribute to a filmmaker who remains among the medium's foremost and most fascinating creators.
A decent and conscientious, though unremarkable, companion piece to Mr. Jia's crucial films.
The problem with art like Jia's is that a straightforward approach isn't going to reveal anything that isn't already there in the work or document anything that the movies don't already document themselves.
Salles, scrupulously self-effacing, affords Jia the latitude to think and talk at his leisure - to speak at length, and candidly, about his work and what informs it.
As Jia guides Salles through Fenyang, formerly a prison, and his past shooting locations, and as he introduces old friends and neighbors, the documentary gives evidence of how a director translates personal experience and political perspective into film.
A thought-provoking documentary on the gifted Chinese director and his films.
Interesting and valuable for its sense of Jia at low-key ease in almost incomprehensibly different worlds, among aunties, accountants and artists.
It has a humble simplicity to it that is befitting a director whose works are so often about the disenfranchised and those who struggle amid their surroundings.
An inspired approach to biography [...] a thoughtful portrait of this gifted artist.
Walter Salles reinforces the impression of Jia's own art as emerging fluidly from the vagaries of his own life and socioeconomic position.
