This is a real slog of a movie. Serious pacing and tonal problems, no real payoff and no reason to care. Goes through extended periods of no dialogue or exposition, just, nothing.

Overall not bad. Interesting to see a Chinese movie without the usual glitz you get so often. Industrial in look and life style. Good plot but very slow moving. Must stick with. Interesting ending. Recommended.

Beautiful atmospheric movie with a deep, complex plot with characters either devoid of emotion or exploding with rage or sadness... but I admit it got tiresome by the second half. Some scenes were quick, ultra violent bouts of madness that I loved but most of the film is dense, slow and very difficult to digest. I know it's an asian thing in general with their cinema which I usually enjoy but this movie in particular I found a little lethargic... perhaps because the soundtrack was so minimal. Acting was amazing except for the lead who I found to be a little too inflated.
