KAILI BLUES (on Cine-File)

This week over at Cine-File under "Also Recommended," I wrote about Bi Gan's KAILI BLUES. It's Bi-guiling! (See what I did there?) For anyone craving a deep, specific dive into this picture, I commend to your attention an ingenious article called Poetics and the Periphery: The Journey of Kaili Blues by Jiwei Xiao and Dudley Andrew, over at Cineaste. They analyze the film as a kind of "camera obscura," and offer, well, ingenious analyses of its visual and aural rhymes.
