Critic Reviews for Old Beast

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (2) | Fresh (6)

  • Social realism is delivered with an impressively tough edge in "Old Beast," a compelling portrait of a selfish father whose reprehensible behavior drives his adult children to take drastic action.

    November 3, 2017 | Full Review…
  • Armed with some gritty mise-en-scene, riveting camerawork and a gripping turn by veteran Tu Men in the leading role, Zhou Ziyang's first feature offers an engaging portrait of dreary, disoriented lives in a provincial Chinese city.

    October 24, 2017 | Full Review…
  • "Old Beast" is a great film that highlights the director's knowledge of the place he grew up at and Tu Men's performance, as it presents a combination of entertainment and meaningfulness through a number of points but quite realistic social remarks.

    November 30, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Though a little too crude to work as powerfully as it might in dramatic terms, Old Beast is nevertheless an important film, and a bold one to make considering the politics of state funders and censors.

    February 28, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Zhou's screenplay perfectly captures the frustrations of the new generation, but fails to make them any more sympathetic than their transparently detestable father.

    December 20, 2017 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • In a film that doesn't shy away from depicting harsh truths, Zhou lets the drama unravel without any overt histrionics; never playing the situation for easy tears or cathartic laughs.
