Still Life

Went to a press screening for a Chinese film called Still Life today. Stark, existential, with the occasional surreal flourish and a distinct rural/industrial, 21st century, Yangtze River, Three Gorges Dam-doomed village vibe. Can't say more -- they made me swear I'd only write a capsule this early in the film festival (SFIFF that is).
