Critic Reviews for Saturday Fiction

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (4) | Fresh (7) | Rotten (6)

  • The hegemony of history is rigid, but Lou Ye is still able to disrupt it in the form of its representation.

    October 4, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…
  • With bitter irony seething in his blend of kinetic camerawork and silky black-and-white tones, Lou borrows the form of historical drama to expose the corruption and the terror of a modern surveillance state.

  • As elusive and unsatisfying for us as it is for its various characters.

    September 5, 2019 | Rating: C+ | Full Review…
  • This moody, black-and-white period piece always intrigues, even if it only intermittently catches fire.

  • Theatre and reality merge to elegant but confused effect in Saturday Fiction...

    September 4, 2019 | Full Review…
  • As though to compensate for having far too many characters, Ma Yingi's script skimps on characterization - no one here has any defining personality trait except untrustworthiness.

  • Saturday Fiction could have worked as a straightforward but layered espionage story in the same vein as Bridge of Spies. Instead, the filmmakers tried to be clever, and as a result, they lost the plot - literally.

  • For [director] Lou Ye, ambiguity is much more attractive than any closed, conclusive answer. [Full review in Spanish]
