Jef Costello with his raincoat and his hat makes him one of the coolest characters I’ve seen in movies. It’s a solid movie with a great screenplay. The filmmaking was really good and there are some brilliant shots both aesthetical and thoughtful.
Barely a smile in 4 hours. No hint of hope nor happiness in this film. Hu Bo, the director tragically killed himself after making this. We can see his view on what is life in his first & final movie. I understand why he killed himself. He had nothing good/meaningful to take out of this life.
