Critic Reviews for Red Obsession
Despite being a rather thin, by-the-books documentary that abruptly changes course at the halfway mark, Red Obsession tells a fascinating financial tale about the rise of "wine fever" in China.
"Red Obsession" gains interest as it delineates how the production and sale of first-growth Bordeaux has become the biggest of businesses and how the Chinese may or may not fit into the picture.
A film about obsession, about wine-mania, about people who live, breathe, eat, think, drink wine.
The movie raises legitimate concerns about the cultural and economic implications of status-minded overconsumption.
Audience Reviews for Red Obsession
Netflix 5/10/14 Started slowly but turned into a really interesting story not only about wine but about Chinese culture, economics and global influence/implications. Right now average wine consumption for Chinese citizens is 1 bottle per person versus 34 for France and US. If China approaches those numbers they will consume all the wine in the world.
If you're like me and cant tell the difference between a Pinot Noir from a Merlot yous could still find some interesting tidbits about how wine has becomes China's latest status symbol
An enlightening documentary that can be really absorbing, showing us the art involved in winemaking and how wine has been turning into an economic investment due to its always increasing demand - especially from China - leading to an unprecedented impact on the market.
