Storyline

"At times the news is more dramatic than the movie." This is the theme and intent of Disorder. The movie shows about twenty different actual events without intervention, exposing absurdity and outrage. A madman dancing in the middle of the road without his shirt, pigs blocking people on the roadside, citizens hanging their laundry on city electricity wires, laborers attempting to continue construction even after finding cultural assets in the grounds, policemen beating people and locking them up in squad cars in broad daylight. There is no order that matters. As the title says it, it's complete chaos and disorder. Written by Pusan International Film Festival

A symphony of disorder
8 February 2012 | by poikkeus1See all my reviews

Documentary director Weikai Huang has assembled various footage photographed in urban China - to create a sort of symphony of disorder. A water main springs a spectacular leak in downtown traffic; passersby take advantage of the tumult to slow down and wash their tars. A man possibly fakes being injured in a car accident; motorists at first offer money to the injured party, who's brusquely dragged off the pavement by the police. A half-dressed man poises to jump from a bridge to bring attention to a stalled legal situation. Pedestrians repeatedly risk their lives by walking across a busy highway. People go their daily way, wading through flooded streets. Fattened pigs go loose across the highway, and don't seem interested in moving. A disheveled man dances between cars, narrowly avoiding being struck.

In a little under an hour, DISORDER captures everyday life gone wrong, a vision of civilization that's lost control of itself. The film is shot in black and white, on grainy stock to give the feeling of hopelessness and documentary reality - like modern-day newsreel footage. Except DISORDER doesn't narrate the action; it's up to the viewer to assemble the storyline into a portrait of modern life gone wrong. It's very effective, and almost surreal, at times.
