  1. azoulay's rating of the film Useless

    Ce n'est pas un documentaire, c'est un constat désespéré et ici la Chine est le miroir du monde. Regarde bosser ceux qui fabriquent nos fringues, ils s'usent. Regarde les pauvres, les mineurs et leurs couturières, ce monde-là va disparaitre il meurt. Au centre la styliste chinoise riche qui pense penser le monde et qui intitule sa collection "inutile". Le film est beau comme la vérité. Bravo Jia Zhangke

  2. Zachary Phillip Brailsford's rating of the film Useless

    How can I see this? Apart from Xiao Wu, this is the only longer film I have left to watch (and I should be watching Xiao Wu soon, since it's on this site) by Jia. I wish some of his stuff was easier to find... Savvy

  3. εξώτερο Διάστημα's rating of the film Useless

    ma ke does with her clothes what jurgen reble does with his film: to fully emerge as individualities, they first have to go throgh a gestative period inside earth's womb, to be reborn by it. apart from this, the film is also about the extinction od a profession, that of tailor, one of the hundreds disappeared with the rise of mass production. as designer names grow bigger and stronger, small-scale sewers go bankrupt.
