  1. msmichel's rating of the film China Heavyweight

    Cinema verite documentary from Yung Chang that uses the re-emergence of boxing in mainland China, after decades being banned by the Mao government, as its starting point. However, unlike 'Last Train Home' the emotional distance provided by this kind of filmmaking makes the film less successful in gathering any kind of response from the viewer. Gets bogged down in too few stories none of them inspirational. A miss.
