The Wild Goose Lake
aka Nan fang che zhan de ju hui
First screened in October 2019
Director: Diao Yinan. Cast: Hu Ge, Kwei Lun-Mei, Liao Fan, Qi Liang, Zhang Yicong, Regina Wan, Huang Jue, Chloe Maayan. Screenplay: Diao Yinan.

Twitter Capsule: Maybe not a mold-breaker, but so strong at movement, color, space, tension, rhythm, and taciturn character.

VOR:   The more I dwell, the richer this seems as a dual intervention into old noir tropes and current Chinese cultural production. Killer end.
