Wang Bing Prancis, 2018

Lynch/Fellini's rating of the film Dead Souls

Wang Bing has made an incredible opus here, displaying the different ways people deal with trauma by allowing victims of the anti-rightist movement discuss their experience in Mao's labor camps. Wang does not cut frequently, so as to eliminate some level of manipulation, and to give the sense of imprisonment that his subjects face every day. At 8 hours long, it's not an easy sit. But an incredible one nonetheless.
