“This 3D movie with a 55-minute-long take is the revelation of this year’s Cannes Film Festival. The Chinese director’s sophomore effort is a fascinating application of filmmaking innovation toward expressionistic ends. It follows up on the promise of his 40-minute long take in Kaili Blues with an even longer one, in 3D, set within the confines of a dream sequence that plays like a total revelation. Bi’s lyrical neo-noir begins with the poetic tale of a man returning to his hometown and searching for a long-lost love, then finds him putting his 3D glasses on at a movie theater—a cue for the audience to follow suit, as the movie launches into a staggering 55-minute-long take shot entirely in 3D.“ (Eric Kohn, indiewire)
