Long Day’s Journey Into Night

As proven by his knockout debut, Kaili Blues, Bi Gan is preoccupied with film’s potential to both materialize mental space and convey physical sensation. His cinematic ambitions are further crystallized, to say the least, in Long Day’s Journey Into Night, a noir-tinged film about a solitary man (Jue Huang) haunted by loss and regret, told in two parts: the first an chronological mosaic, the second a nocturnal dream. Again, centering around his native province of Guizhou in southwest China, the director has created a film like nothing you’ve seen before.
