A densely packed documentary that is about as comprehensive a look at the Cultural Revolution as can be imagined in a two- hour work.
It's chilling and enraging to take in this portrait of revolution gone mad.
A gripping look at Mao's Cultural Revolution.
Does a thoughtful job of streamlining the bloody realities - both literal and psychological -- of China's Cultural Revolution into roughly two hours of film.
It's as good a sign as any of how absorbing Morning Sun is that the film's sudden ending makes you greedy for more.
Gripping, relentlessly tragic retelling of life in revolutionary times.
A documentary that explores, on many levels, the roots of modern China, and that puts into perspective all of the sublime Chinese narrative films which have recently received Western distribution.
Offers an invaluable overview of a national tragedy that continues to boggle the mind.
The first film to stand back and take a good, hard look at the era, and it has the force of shameful secrets being hung out in the air.
