A Touch Of Sin

Jia Zhangke’s new film marks a radical change of pace for the acclaimed Chinese director of Still Life and The World. It’s an angry contemporary drama that re-creates four under-reported but actual incidents from recent Chinese history—two killing sprees, one murder, and one suicide—all involving dissatisfied or exploited workers. “An explosive indictment of the Chinese economic miracle and its brutalizing effect on ordinary Chinese life.” –Film Comment. Best Screenplay, Cannes 2013. A 2013 New York Film Festival selection.
