Director: Bi Gan. Cast: Huang Jue, Tang Wei, Li Meng, Sylvia Chang, Chen Yongzhong, Lee Hong-Chi. Screenplay: Bi Gan.

Twitter Capsule: I both admired and felt browbeaten into admiration. Formally jaw-dropping, but I'm mixed on payoffs.

VOR:   Complex approaches to time, space, and narrative are as high-risk as the famous, extended 3D sequence shot. All credit on pure ambition and brio.
