Dec 1, 2008 Full Review Robert Koehler Variety With virtually a single-camera set-up and absolute attention paid to a woman who survived the horrors of Mao's China, Wang Bing continues his run as one of the world's supreme doc filmmakers. May 25, 2007 Full Review Robert Koehler Cinema Scope ... Wang Bing's second film, Fengming: A Chinese Memoir, proceeds to unfold as a cinematic oral history that tells of the full horrors of the worst of Maoist China.
