Bi Gan directed this boldly original debut feature.

Aug 11, 2016 | Full Review…

Bi's singular vision bears comparison to those of other geniuses such as Tarkovsky, Sokurov, David Lynch, Luis Buñuel and Apichatpong Weerasethakul.

Aug 4, 2016 | Rating: 4/4 | Full Review…

For adventurous moviegoers, "Kaili Blues," which could draw comparisons to the early work of Apichatpong Weerasethakul and Zhangke Jia is an interesting and challenging film, worth taking a flier.

Jun 22, 2016 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

A melancholy tale of loss and regret that marks a singular feature debut for the Chinese director Bi Gan.

Jun 2, 2016 | Full Review…

As lovely as the movie is to look at (and the final scene is exceptionally wonderful), it's too oblique to concentrate its energies and sharpen its focus.

May 19, 2016 | Full Review…

"Kaili Blues" has the kitchen-sink feel of a new director eager to try every art-film technique in the book, but the film's beauty and inventiveness are riveting.
