Wuyong (Useless) (2007)
Critic Reviews for Wuyong (Useless)
Zhangke eludes the genre's constraints to provide a revelatory documentary view of inner and outer life in contemporary China.
A documentary that's no more than a string of images, Useless is pretty much that.
But whether in Ma Ke's placid environs or amidst the squall of the machines, Jia's almost constantly moving camera seems to bring an elegiac tranquility to everything it observes.
Jia's empathetic close-ups -- thanks to Yu Lik Wai's masterful HD cinematography -- ground the film's portrait in individual experience.
The love and craft that went into Jia's earlier films are also apparent in 'Useless,' but exactly what he is saying, is not.
