Bi Gan follows up his knockout debut, Kaili Blues, with this noir-tinged stunner about a lost soul on a quest to find a missing woman from his past. Following leads across Guizhou province, he crosses paths with a series of colorful characters. When the search leads him to a dingy movie theater, the film launches into an hour-long, gravity-defying sequence shot that plunges its protagonist—and us—into a labyrinthine cityscape. Nominated for a Un Certain Regard Award at the Cannes Film Festival. Official Selection at the Toronto International Film Festival. "A densely layered and slowly mesmerizing cinematic feat." - Jordan Mintzer, Hollywood Reporter
