Working with deliberately limited resources, writer-director Patrick Wang revels in technical gaucherie that would hinder lesser filmmakers.
It's every bit as human-scaled as the filmmaker's other work-but also, in its noble restraint, a little less involving.
An unusual and involving if sometimes demanding and difficult movie.
Harder to miss, however, in every grainy 16mm shot and heartfelt performance is the movie's understated soul, as Wang guides us, sometimes awkwardly, usually touchingly, from isolation and secrets into understanding and connection.
It's an artful portrait of a world that refuses the order we try to impose on it when we close ourselves off to heartache, doubt and pain.
Offers many quiet, often character-driven rewards but struggles to become larger than the sum of its parts.
The Grief of Others is a film that externalizes these internal emotions and suggests, even implicitly, it can be absolutely cathartic to share in this process with others.
A quiet bruiser about repressed anger, silence, and ultimately forgiveness. It depicts complex domestic crisis in a non-linear, almost magical way with aesthetic fractures that expand the possibilities of the frame and deepen over time.
This a much leaner film in terms of narrative incident than In the Family, though it paves the way for Patrick Wang to step into new artistic terrain.
While the subject matter...amounts to standard fare, audiences can all the more appreciate the thoughtful rigor applied by a team of artists working from page to screen.
A delicate, elliptically structured portrait of six wounded souls coping with the aftermath of tragedy.
