J. Hoberman The Nation The prolific director examines how the People’s Republic became the workshop for much of the world. Nov 10, 2023 Full Review Glenn Kenny RogerEbert.com It’s not a pleasant experience, but it’s an illuminating one. Rated: 3.5/4 Nov 10, 2023 Full Review Ben Kenigsberg New York Times Like Wang’s “’Til Madness Do Us Part,” set in a mental hospital, the movie is an exhortation not to forget the unseen. Nov 9, 2023 Full Review Derick McDuff Film Threat The filmmakers are seemingly not interested in telling a particular story or promoting a specific narrative. Rather, they want to put the audience in the shoes of the people who inhabit these factories and tell their very human stories. Rated: 6/10 Feb 20, 2024 Full Review Sarah Boslaugh TheArtsStl ...the featured workers function in the film like the elements in a Bruegel painting: each figure is distinct and unique but takes its meaning as part of a larger whole. Rated: 7/10 Feb 20, 2024 Full Review Diane Carson KDHX (St. Louis) ... A marathon, one worth the time and effort. Jan 17, 2024 Full Review Read all reviews
