  • Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews
    • Excerpt: You may have trouble navigating its plot, but if ever there was a movie to get lost in, this is it.
  • Roderick Heath @ Film Freedonia
    • Excerpt: We are of course watching Bi’s movie and he knows it, using the privilege to rewrite his own reality.
  • Charlie Juhl @ Citizen Charlie
    • Excerpt: Bi Gan is brave to attempt a feat like this and I wonder how much of it was to satisfy a creative need and how much it was for purposeful notoriety. Like much arthouse cinema, the film defies easy categorization and will truly appeal to only a thin slice of the movie-going public, but for those few, Long Day’s Journey Into Night is pure catnip.
  • Peter Nellhaus @ Coffee, Coffee and more Coffee
    • Excerpt: As for the last hour, even in 2D, it is spectacular to think that this was actually filmed in real time with no breaks, no editing tricks.
  • [New] | Gregory J. Smalley @ 366 Weird Movies
    • Excerpt: Scored to Chinese blues and shot on slick neon streets, the film serves up its slow, dreamy story with an intoxicating noirish melancholy.
