  1. Jdsarmientoburgos's rating of the film Street Angel

    I'm not sure how much I enjoyed that ending, and parts of the version I saw was very rough. Would love to see a restored version of this because there was so much greatness here. Amazing performances and that voice! tragic knowing that Xuan Zhou ended in a mental asylum because her beautiful spirit shone through in this picture.

  2. francisca bacon's rating of the film Street Angel

    First-timers florilegium, incipits held in film stock's flattening herbarium: first time in love, first time in a skyrise seeking lawyer's assistance, sipping from a water dispenser plastic glass, touching a radiator. First-timers' Yellow Pages and omnicomprehensive guidance book are newspapers enveloping the walls & pasting up the chinks. History marches on but youth starts living it afresh w/ each new generation.

  3. Irma Vep's rating of the film Street Angel

    Gorgeous bittersweet love story. Zhou Xuan is incredible and her songs are deeply moving. Zhao Huishen haunts the movie like a tragic expressionist ghost. I can't believe it's the only movie she ever made.
