User Reviews

An assured directorial debut
12 August 2018 | by TheBigSickSee all my reviews

This stunning dark comedy, The Island, succeeds both narratively and technically. The screenplay is smart, with twists and turns and some sharp satire towards humanity, capitalism and brainwash. The cinematography and editing are much mature. Wang Baoqiang continues his run as the best and the most popular comedian of his generation, and Lay marks an important step as he transforms from a singer-dancer to an actor. Huang Bo, on the other hand, simply shocks the world as a director, just like what he did twelve years ago in Crazy Stone as an actor.
