Through interviews with retired workers and faux interviews with scripted characters, Jia brings long-repressed history to life on an intimate scale. . . . Jia quietly unlocks the floodgates of memory as a crucial first step toward personal and political liberation.

24 City belies its documentary origins with overtly poetic film language: the film is an elegiac visual symphony of carefully framed compositions,trompe l’oeil camera movements, posed portraits, internal rhymes and mysterious vignettes. It’s also as much a lexicon of body language as anything Andy Warhol achieved in his early portrait reels.

When Kevin B. Lee, in his review in Cineaste (Fall 2009, Vol. XXXIV, No. 4) rightly calls 24 City “an oral history project transformed into performance art,” we should acknowledge that Jia is being both innovative and experimental in one sense and highly traditional and commercial in another.
