Critic Reviews



Based on 5 critic reviews provided by
High Tech, Low Life has a nice easy rhythm. It feels neither hurried nor emphatic. There’s no narration. Zola and Tiger do most of the talking.
Village Voice
Whatever their orientation, both men are intrepid in pursuing the truth, the consequences of which are made clear in a series of terrifying late-film crackdowns.
An engaging study of the disparate characters who are drawn to speak out when the authorities crack the whip.
Slant Magazine
As far as its subject matter goes, the documentary only scratches the surfaces, only reaffirming the simple idea that Internet censorship in China is prevalent and unfair.
The result is a narrow, albeit intriguing window into a technological revolt that deserves a more far-reaching film than this one.
