Miki Z further ruins his chances for profundity with an unnecessarily cruel, unexpectedly violent denouement that seems added as an afterthought...
Even at its least convincing, The Road to Mandalay is a film firmly grounded in humanity and the many unpleasant truths about our world.
Thanks to Midi Z's brilliant command of visual metaphors and compassion for his subjects, [Mandalay] is elevated into an unnervingly immediate portrait of the human cost of displacement.
Both Wu Ke-xi and Kai Ko were phenomenal in their performances and Midi Z has probably in Mandalay his best work so far.
[Road to Mandalay] ends up instead as the oddly frustrating work of a director who clearly knows what he's doing but not what he actually wants to do.
The film's cinematic flair is occasionally increased through high drama and surrealism; the ending is too much, but before it there's an excellent flourish.
A notable addition to the ever-swelling list of films that deal with migration.
Compassionate and honestly told, it is a real empathy machine of a movie. And, of course, you can't watch it without thinking of the desperate plight of Burma's Rohingya Muslims.
Taiwanese director Midi Z pins docu-style heft to a resonant character drama about Burmese migrants in Bangkok.
A layered film that demands discussion and analysis from its viewers.
A provocative and illuminating portrayal of people lost in the world.
The Road to Mandalay powerfully portrays two people being torn apart by all the promises and illusions of the immigrant experience.
