Critic Reviews for The Go Master

All Critics (16) | Top Critics (7) | Fresh (10) | Rotten (6)

  • With no attempt made to even explain the basic rules of Go, this is essentially a study of forehead-kneading concentration, of how to shut out even the most tempestuous of world events.

  • This soporific stupor and final pinch of defeat is the experience that most fully equates with watching this film.

    March 28, 2008 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • Chang captures Wu's dedication and respect for a game whose intricacies reflect the vicissitudes of his own life.

    March 27, 2008 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Impressively shot in 'Scope, it's a considerable achievement, possessed of a tranquil beauty and sagacity.

    March 17, 2007 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Under Tian Zhuangzhuang, one of China's leading directors, The Go Master unfolds as meditatively as a game of go.

    March 15, 2007 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Tian Zhuangzhuang's biopic is a stately and respectful reflection on the life of Wu Qingyuan, one of the 20th century's top players of go, a Japanese game said to rival chess in complexity.
