山河故人 | Shan he gu ren

Jia Zhangke China, 2015

Spiritchaser's rating of the film Mountains May Depart

The third act completely falls apart, and even the first two parts of the film feels so inadequate in relating the complexity of love-triangle relationships. For a fantastic love-triangle film, see Hong's 'Oki's Movie'. As a commentary on tradition-modernity, it's incomparable to the rest of the director's work. A major disappointment.
