    "I want to go home...no one's more homesick than me...how the fuck did I end up like this?"

  4. mail@gclorusso.com's rating of the film 'Til Madness Do Us Part

    Incredible. You can’t have a much stronger contact to reality than what this piece offers you. A complete immersion into a real form of hell.

  5. captainfez's rating of the film 'Til Madness Do Us Part

    Wait 'til you find out some patients are in there purely for divergent views on family planning.

  6. Francisco Ortega's rating of the film 'Til Madness Do Us Part

    Realismo puro y duro. A lo largo de sus casi cuatro horas de duración vas dándote cuenta de algo que acaba confirmando el director en tres pequeños textos finales: que más que un psiquiátrico se trata de una carcel donde van a parar todo tipo de "trastornados", sin que nadie se libre de poder entrar en esa categoría.

  7. Bilouaustria's rating of the film 'Til Madness Do Us Part

    After 10 weeks and 300 hours of film in this madhouse, Wang Bing came with this great documentary. As usual, not spectacular, but confident that everyday observations and length will make justice to what he saw. The result is astonishing. Madness is there alright but nothing to be compared to Depardon´s "San Clemente". Here most of those poor men dared to oppose the chinese government. Looks a lot like hell on earth.

  8. Rex Freeman's rating of the film 'Til Madness Do Us Part

    Ok yes it's undeniably a 5/5 film. There have been zillions of worthy and godawfully righteous docos this century so far. Vegan spumefests and weird askew milennial rantisms with good miniature camera technology that no one should have to abide while Herzog is still alive. So this film is great and a privilege, but no sex, drugs or violence? At all? In 3 months? No dirty protest?Maybe a 5th hour was warranted here.

  9. Stefan Drees's rating of the film 'Til Madness Do Us Part

    It's a shocking but very important film - although I wonder how the men would have behaved if there hadn't been a camera. At least to some of them the camera (or the film crew) seemed a very attractive thing to communicate with.

  10. astygianelysium's rating of the film 'Til Madness Do Us Part

    The madness of being confined to a time nearly scrubbed clean of activity, work, pleasure. That its most lasting feeling--even beyond bloated time--is love, doomed love, unsentimental love, is a testament to the persistence of intimacy.

  11. bryanvmh's rating of the film 'Til Madness Do Us Part

    Giving a rating to a four hour experience implies a cohesiveness that can't exist when time gets stretched like it is here. At times beautiful, even through a dusty lens, there is remarkable optimism lurking underneath madness here.

  13. Maarten Baars's rating of the film 'Til Madness Do Us Part

    This is way too long. After half an hour you get the idea that the patients of this mental hospital are rotting their lives away doing nothing. It's an important message, but the filmmaker could've done with much shorter shots to keep the film more compact instead of the 4 hours it is taking now. Only at the end the film gets a direction as we see patients talking with their loved ones about their lives. Too late...

  14. juho sellman's rating of the film 'Til Madness Do Us Part

    The sheer filthiness of the "hospital" and the lack of empathy from the doctors towards the patients is heartbreaking. Uncompromising, the way that the camera is a silent observer of the human condition in most awful of places gives me the chills. This is what documentarists are for.

  15. Imago Vanitas's rating of the film 'Til Madness Do Us Part

    Asked by Charlie Rose on the influence of Philladelphia in his imaginery, David Lynch said it was "the wide range of human behavior" he observed there. Here is a huge range of such behavior sistematically obscured by modern society estructure. As sophisticated and fancy as it can be, this is exactly the way such society proceeds with the individuals. Just like that. Denial as the source of illness.

  16. -REM-'s rating of the film 'Til Madness Do Us Part

  17. Marcin Żuraw's rating of the film 'Til Madness Do Us Part

    difficult not to become insane in such a place!

  18. Stian Gledje Bekkvik's rating of the film 'Til Madness Do Us Part

    If I thought cinema was essentially ethical – this would probably have my fifth star...

  19. lynchs's rating of the film 'Til Madness Do Us Part

  20. João Martins's rating of the film 'Til Madness Do Us Part

    A cruel reality that we tend to close our eyes to it. A must-see documentary of one of the best Chinese film-makers of his generation!

  21. Dries's rating of the film 'Til Madness Do Us Part

  22. Alex Hall's rating of the film 'Til Madness Do Us Part

    Being almost 4 hours long I thought the length of it would be unnecessary and due to lack of editing, but the little time spent with these characters offers a small but essential glimpse into their lives. The filmmaker appears to be invisible, giving us a bare-bone account of everyday life in a mental asylum. Traumatising, heart-warming and expertly filmed.

  23. Kerem Sadi Ekiz's rating of the film 'Til Madness Do Us Part

    Difficult to endure and unforgettably disturbing.

  24. Glue Sniffer's rating of the film 'Til Madness Do Us Part

    Filmowi brakuje przede wszystkim przedstawienia historii nagrywanych pacjentów, całość lekko przydługa. Dokument pokazuje jednak brak zaradności państwa w stosunku do osób niestabilnych psychicznie, smutny obraz błąkających się ludzi, którym poza salą telewizyjną nie jest serwowana żadna alternatywa spędzania "wolnego" czasu.Porzucani sami sobie tylko pielęgnują swój stan chorobowy.
