  • This is a movie that just has a ton of imagination... It's an absolute spectacle.

  • Although the often humorous film may not quite rank among Chen's best and that CGI-enhanced feline isn't always convincingly up to scratch, the buoyant yarn nevertheless casts a beguiling spell.

    March 21, 2019 | Full Review…
  • This stunning blockbuster shows that a superior original source, vaunting artistic ambition and a $170 million budget can turn a potboiler supernatural whodunit into something of ravishing beauty.

  • Prioritizes sprawling spectacle over involving storytelling and falls far short of the historical and social allegories with which [Kaige] made his name ...

    January 3, 2018 | Full Review…
  • Chen gives a fairy-tale tone to this ghost story yet always goes deeper into the issues of love, death, trust and envy, loyalty and betrayal.

    February 8, 2019 | Full Review…
  • This modern fantasy weds the techniques of silent cinema with CGI to conjure a memorably mythic realm.
