A Touch of Sin

Directed by Jia Zhangke

A very unsentimental essay on the nature of violence, and the senselessness of human behaviour. I’ve never seen such brave filmmaking from mainland China, and it was definitely a good wake-up call. There were slight occasional hiccups on the technical side, but the film certainly had a lot to say: especially through the silent shots of the characters lost in their own meaninglessness.
