DrFirestone's rating of the film China Not China

I appreciate the skill and effort to create the visual effect, the music is interesting too. But it does not feel like this feature dares to venture far beyond that and the 14 minutes seem to last forever - quite an achievement for a short! ;-) It quickly becomes repetitive, but then just towards the end the night sequences bring some new patters and the floating lights are so hypotisingly beautiful...
