Jia Zhangke, a Guy from Fenyang Reviews

May 27, 2016
While Salles' portrait gives a very incomplete account of the man and his art, it pays tribute to a filmmaker who remains among the medium's foremost and most fascinating creators.

A decent and conscientious, though unremarkable, companion piece to Mr. Jia's crucial films.

The problem with art like Jia's is that a straightforward approach isn't going to reveal anything that isn't already there in the work or document anything that the movies don't already document themselves.

Salles, scrupulously self-effacing, affords Jia the latitude to think and talk at his leisure - to speak at length, and candidly, about his work and what informs it.
