    ★★★

    One of those L.A. satires that always make me think it must be horrible place to live. Better than expected, with some nice twists and turns, and some borrowed noir elements that keep it fun.

    Wow - another case where I read the reviews on this site and feel as though I just watched a totally different film. Maybe people don't realize the risks being taken here by both the documentarian and the protesters she is following - the footage is remarkably good considering the circumstances under which it was obtained. Not only do I feel I have learned something about China; I also applaud the nuance of her editing, effectively moving between social and political critique and personal portrayal to create truly moving portraits of these individuals.
