Worthy but flawed

Chinese arthouse may be doing well on the international arthouse stage, I feel it's in a big old rut. The Wild Goose Lake is another good example. The violence looks a bit off, the neon shots are pretty sloppy and the story seems to combine the worst elements of crime and arthouse cinema. It's not a terrible film, but it is disappointing.
