Critic Reviews for Shadow
Every supremely controlled stylistic element of Zhang Yimou's breathtakingly beautiful "Shadow" is an echo of another, a motif repeated, a pattern recurring in a fractionally different way each time.
This is probably the most stunningly beautiful Zhang has made to date.
There's romance and melodrama in Shadow, and while it's less emphasized than in Zhang's other wuxia films, it pairs well with the Machiavellian intrigue.
The film's rain-soaked moodiness has genuine gravity and the fight choreography is inventive.
It's a marvel to see auteur Zhang Yimou return with another wuxia epic, over a decade after his last, and approach it in a dazzlingly different way.
