Critic Reviews for The Great Buddha+
As savagely satirical as it is gorgeously surreal, "The Great Buddha+" is something else again - an outrageous, poignant punk Taiwanese black comedy marking the feature arrival of fresh filmmaking talent Huang Hsin-Yao.
Which may sound good, but 'The Great Buddha+' is one of those movies that's much more rewarding to think about than it is to watch.
Most importantly, the pic gets laughs out of the class system without being glib about its cruelties. The gulf between rich and poor clearly matters to Huang, who poignantly shows how poverty robs even the dead of dignity.
The good cheer goes a long way in countering the knee-jerk cynicism, which grows tiresome well before the end.
This ballad of sad losers mixed with satire on parochial politics is convulsively funny yet uncompromisingly bleak, bridging art with entertainment.
...an odd, philosophical smorgasbord of scathing themes that colorfully decorate this off-kilter social critique of underclass religion and repression...an ambitious, imaginative, and bitingly humorous cultural concoction of meager existences in Taiwan
