Wtf ?? Wheres the ending?
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.
Dark and moody. Loved it.
Very Gory and violent , but entertaining!
Really boring, slow burning kind of noir film set in northern China in the winter. I was captivated by the main character, but the ending really ruined it for me, and it drags out something unnecessarily long.
