Directed by Bi Gan

Long Day’s Journey Into Night is a noirish stunner about a lost soul (Huang Jue) on a quest to find a missing woman from his past (Tang Wei, Lust, Caution). Following leads across Guizhou province, the man crosses paths with a series of colorful characters, among them a prickly hairdresser played by Taiwanese superstar Sylvia Chang. When the search leads him to a dingy movie theater, the protagonist—and us—into a dreamlike, labyrinthine cityscape. A monumental accomplishment from director Bi Gan (Kaili Blues), it is China’s biggest arthouse hit of all time, and has already become a modern cinematic landmark.

(Note: DVD is not in 3D, purchase Blu-ray format for 3D experience)

“Critic’s Pick! Intoxicating. Feels like dreaming with your eyes open.”

“Swooningly beautiful... with a staggering 59-minute 3-D tracking shot that must be seen to be believed.”

"Chinese box office phenomenon Long Day's Journey Into Night is a mesmerizing hallucination of a film... recalls Tarkovsky, Malick and Wong Kar-wai."

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

“Imaginatively spellbinding. An all-enveloping experience that genuinely approaches the condition of hallucination.”

“Magical. An honest-to-God, how’d-they-do-that enchantment. Ranks among the great poetic and technical achievements in recent cinema. A full-body swoon of a movie.”

“Mind-blowing. Brims with hallucinatory brilliance. The 3D shot of the century.”

“Gorgeous… mind-boggling. A feat of choreography and visual acuity that’s astonishing to behold.”

"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."

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

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

“Mesmerizing... movie magic. This is bold and rare filmmaking.”

“A pièce de résistance of labyrinthine long-take camerawork, choreography, and dream logic."

“A mind-blowing cinematographic journey.”
