The showy jump cuts and off-kilter close-ups belie an extremely well edited, even supple, piece of work.
This is well worth checking out.
A compelling story of love and obsession...
Lou Ye lays out a ravishing wasteland of femmes fatales and lovelorn tough guys -- all in 79 minutes.
An assured exercise in high cinematic style, it references a variety of films and filmmakers -- Alfred Hitchcock not the least of them -- but what it is preeminently is alive and dynamic.
This atmospheric film, even with its self-conscious style, is a show of major talent by Lou.
The ambiguity of its story and its lush, painterly images give the film a dreamlike quality, but it taps deep into the soul of genuine, soul-aching romantic longing.
Gorgeous, enigmatic movie that probably adds up to very little, but Ye is a tantalizing imagemaker.
An appealing little show-off of a movie by a young first-timer practicing his licks.
Its visual style is gritty... and yet there is also a sense of the fantastical and of an achingly lush romanticism.
Needlessly incoherent, and not much fun.
The first half of this movie is an obvious imitation of Vertigo - right down to the adapted Bernard Herrmann music - but it always feels fresh and original in spirit.
