A highly surprising 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.
Centering around his native province of Guizhou in southwest China, director Gan Bi has created a film like nothing you’ve seen before.
In one sublime feat of cinematic magic tricks, Bi forges new possibilities by which movies can defy the constraints of logic and represent the unrepresentable.
Bi Gan’s Long Day’s Journey Into Night is as intoxicating as it is unexpected. – The New York Times
