Leslie Felperin Guardian It’s great to be reminded what a fine actor Bai is, as she draws on the intense carnality that’s always been a bit of a trademark but adds something tragic and deranged to the mix. Rated: 3/5 Oct 24, 2023 Full Review Edmund Lee South China Morning Post A daring effort for what it’s worth, Back Home is an eerie occult horror that works even better as a thinly veiled, caustic parody of Hong Kong’s social and political environment of recent times. Rated: 3.5/5 May 10, 2024 Full Review Read all reviews
