  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  4. 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...

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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 for communicate.

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

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

    difficult not to become insane in such a place!

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

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

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

  12. 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!

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

  14. 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.

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

    Difficult to endure and unforgettably disturbing.

  16. 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.

  17. Ury Iván's rating of the film 'Til Madness Do Us Part

    empatía por los que sufren ...en algún lugar de la mente puede estar tu propia locura...

  18. PWLAD's rating of the film 'Til Madness Do Us Part

    visually great, a honest view about craziness, about the one who suffer it and the one who causes it.

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

    however horrible and inhumane it may look it's only an amplification of any "institution" in the world.

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

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

    Screenshot and synopsis above don't accurately portray the horror of this shocking cinema verite documentary about a Chinese mental hospital. It isn't any kind of hospital at all, and those unlucky to land in it are likely to go insane if they weren't before. Dissidents and the homeless are tossed in alongside lunatics and violent criminals into this unbelievable filthy, crowded shithole of neglect and despair.

  22. Michael A's rating of the film 'Til Madness Do Us Part

    They being locked through irrationality constructs the idea that loneliness is felt collectively. As a western writing on the film essentially, I metaphorically homogenize each of them, with their enviroremnt strangely so; as one breathing body. Not as chinese but those they are in that isolated totality with its odors, walls, jailed windows, beds of iron... One disowned street being scratching its itchy skin.
