Bitter Money

Wang Bing’s observing style always puts me in bliss, even when the subject is as tough as it is here. Giving in to the tendency to just show and let the takes roll is admirable onto itself. Add to that the asceticism involved in being a part of this world, and you have nothing but my utmost respect. As for the film itself, I gotta sit on that for a little while, because between this and First Reformed, I really need to attend a Teen Titans Go screening in order to pep myself up again.

I wrote a piece on it for Frameland.
