Directed by Bi Gan


As proven by his knockout debut, Kaili Blues, Bi Gan is preoccupied with film’s potential to both materialize mental space and convey physical sensation. His cinematic ambitions are further crystallized, to say the least, in Long Day’s Journey Into Night, a noir-tinged film about a solitary man (Jue Huang) haunted by loss and regret, told in two parts: the first an achronological mosaic, the second a nocturnal dream. Again centering around his native province of Guizhou in southwest China, the director has created a film like nothing you’ve seen before. Co-starring Chinese superstars Sylvia Chang and Wei Tang, the film features an hour-long, gravity-defying 3D sequence shot, which plunges its protagonist—and us—through a labyrinthine cityscape. – New York Film Festival

Reviews

“Staggering. A remarkable new kind of filmmaking experience.”

“It’s impossible to describe… and even more impossible to forget."

A flat-out masterpiece. If Bi Gan’s goal was to reinvent the language of film, he might have done achieved that goal.”

“Mesmerizing. An immersive, jaw-dropping plunge into melancholy and movie magic.”

“Swooningly beautiful... with a staggering 55-minute 3-D tracking shot that must be seen to be believed.”

"Like nothing you've seen before. Like many great filmmakers—from Alain Resnais and Andrei Tarkovsky to David Lynch and Apichatpong Weerasethakul, all of whom he recalls to varying degrees—Bi [Gan] seems to believe that new realms of cinema are possible in making the immaterial material."
