Critic Reviews for The Golden Era

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (6) | Fresh (5) | Rotten (4)

  • Sadly, the tale doesn't always keep pace with the ethereal aesthetic.

  • Hui captures the romantic aura of Xiao's freethinking audacity and artistic vocation in poised, painterly shots that seem less like sites of action than like elusive memories.

  • Though it hasn't the sweep to be greater than the sum of its parts, the movie offers an absorbing mix of melodrama and historical detail.

  • Overlong and too reverent, conveying little sense of Xiao Hong the person and even less of her talent.

  • Beautifully made and deftly performed ...

  • Some writers are shown as activists, political figures, party stalwarts; Xiao, to the last, remains stubbornly committed to her art.
