Critic Reviews for Watching TV with the Red Chinese
Dotan takes this iffy story and makes it nearly unwatchable by jumping back and forth in time, using screens within screens and bouncing between color and black-and-white.
The film nicely captures the grad-student vibe: beer-fueled bull sessions about science, religion, probability and destiny; fragile, self-absorbed egos preening even as confidence wavers.
This quirky indie has an off-kilter, shaggy appeal and a filling story.
The conversations feel artificial, overly concerned with re-creating period detail or interjecting relevant philosophical life concepts, like a constantly rehashed theory of alternate universes built on different "what if?" scenarios.
Audience Reviews for Watching TV with the Red Chinese
Ever want to see a movie or read a book and can't find it. Well this one is it for me. I can't wait to see this film, I just cant find it, its not online, in the theatre, at any festivals, or video stores, and the book is so old i can't find a copy either. when will I see this film, or find this book so I can actually write a review, something about the trailers i saw, or this film just makes me want to see it. The one time I am not in New York, that's the only place it seems you can see it. If anybody's got a private jet and wants to see it drop me a line, Im on the west coast though.
