Review: A Touch Of Sin

Jia Zhangke’s latest film, A Touch Of Sin, has caused something of a stir in his native China, where censors refused the film’s screening. It seems generally believed that this is not only because of the film’s violence (which is considerable at times, but far from boundary-breaking), but also thanks to the greater depiction of a nation that the film paints; that of a land of injustices, of exploitation and of unrecognised daily tragedies. 659 more words
