Ben Sachs Chicago Reader It confirms that Wang is perhaps the most important nonfiction filmmaker anywhere in the world. Jan 17, 2019 Full Review Leo Goldsmith Village Voice We are not, as in so many a contemporary documentary, made to merely identify with the position of cameraperson, but are forced to consider and find our own ethical and political positions. Jan 16, 2018 Full Review Ben Kenigsberg New York Times It's not clear that the director quite found what he was looking for. Jan 11, 2018 Full Review Andreea Patru Vague Visages Ultimately, Bitter Money points out that accumulating money doesn’t necessarily bring wealth, and that slaving away isn’t necessarily a solution for the Chinese subjects — it’s their only option. Dec 6, 2023 Full Review Dan Schindel Hyperallergic Wang has an unreal talent for finding precisely the right way to frame candid moments -- and for making reenacted moments appear candid. Feb 14, 2020 Full Review Tara Judah Desist Film Courtisane presents art on its own terms, not only for what it is not. Jan 24, 2019 Full Review Read all reviews
