Bi Gan directs ‘Long Day’s Journey Into Night’.

 

Bi Gan follows up his knockout debut, Kaili Blues, with this noir-tinged stunner about a lost soul on a quest to find a missing woman from his past. When the search leads him to a dingy movie theater, the film launches into an hour-long, gravity-defying 3D sequence shot that plunges its protagonist—and us—into a labyrinthine cityscape.

 

China’s biggest arthouse hit of all time, the film took in more than $40 million dollars in its opening weekend at the domestic box office.
