Frightening & Intense Scenes
- An Elephant Sitting Still will be one of the most dark, depressing, and lonely films you will ever watch.

Many consider it to be like reading a suicide note, which technically is true because Hu Bo, the writer/director, killed himself sometime during or after post-production.
