Why does Kofman, who co-directs with Tanner King Barklow, insist upon making the movie mostly about himself? He gets into nearly every frame, often in closeup.

All of this could be very funny, but while the film does deliver some strong comic turns, far too much time is spent watching an inactive Kofman whining about his lot ...

It's a cautionary tale of sorts, but the story is so strange it is often not clear exactly what it's cautioning us against.

Unmade in China is nominally about filmmaking, but what Kofman and Barklow do well is to use their unusual position within the Chinese state machine to make a thinly veiled movie about politics.
