  1. William R Clark's rating of the film Platform

    I got a bit lost at the end, and so, I think, did some of the repetitious frames and ideas, but the whole thing is an enormous accomplishment. Love his way of getting characters to communicate with us and each other silently, how he is fascinated with setting this against scenes public performance edited with incredible sound design. Rating could go higher with more knowledge - excuse me while I do some reading.

  3. Henrique Barbosa Justini's rating of the film Platform

    a incursão da china no capitalismo gerou uma nostalgia impossível de ser extinta: o que poderia ser do regime comunista nunca vai ser vivido; restam as esperanças e os fantasmas daquela época. as elipses não explicam, atiram as personagens no mundo.

  4. Renton47's rating of the film Platform

    You could make the argument that Platform belongs in the company of great excess surveyors as Scorsese and PTA, excepting the subject is no less than entire economic liberalisation. The thing about liberalism is each individual thinks it occurs for them. That push and pull is tantamount, but nothing compared to the way space is used to tell the tale, some of the most unforgettable settings even by DVDrip standards.

  6. amandav's rating of the film Platform

    how good this film is didn't hit me until later, slowly

  7. Eric Eidelstein's rating of the film Platform

    Am I your boyfriend? I don't know.

  8. bryanvmh's rating of the film Platform

    Just out of sight but firmly within the frame. "Why are you so happy?" "Am I?"

  9. Traum Baum's rating of the film Platform

    China's turbulent transition from bell-bottoms to spandex.

  12. misu's rating of the film Platform

  13. lina maj's rating of the film Platform

    I paused at least 20 times. Not that the movie was bad, but somehow it was such an excruciating experience for me. I hope I can go back to it one day and like it.

  14. -REM-'s rating of the film Platform

  15. Dominic Rainsford's rating of the film Platform

    Slow, not all that eventful, but extraordinarily involving.

  16. qw0aszx's rating of the film Platform

    223-minute workprint version, just WOW, so many wonderful details lost in the short version...

  17. joey Noodles's rating of the film Platform

    Staggering cinema, surely one of the finest films of the 21st Century and certainly one of the most moving and poetic. Jia casts a beautiful eye over the lives of a group of travelling artists who experience the changes and reforms of Chinese society in the 80s, and while it's so huge in scale, Jia never loses his attention to the fine subtleties and the stunning level of humanity he brings, his masterpiece. 5/5

  18. Marc St-Cyr (Death cinéphilia)'s rating of the film Platform

    With Éloge de l'amour (Godard), Syndromes and Century (Weersathakul), In Vanda's Room-Colossal Youth (Costa), West of the Tracks (Bing) and Ten (Kiarostami), Platform is one of the most important achievement in the 21th Century so far!

  19. Diana Casanova's rating of the film Platform

    I wish I could find this film.

  20. TFCHooligan69's rating of the film Platform

    My favourite theatre screened the 193-minute cut of Jia's masterpiece, and I have not seen the shorter one to compare, but this is essential viewing in every respect.

  21. Duncan Gray's rating of the film Platform

    I feel like I'll need a better transfer with better subtitles to fully grasp the details and story arc of this one—someone, please get on that—but I was gripped for the two and a half hours, digging the elliptical style that feels like dipping in and out of strangers lives as one era gives way to another.

  22. Andrei Rus's rating of the film Platform

    It reminded me of Edward Yang's "Brighter Summer Day" and of Hou Hsiao-hsien's films (some of my favourite films ever). It was a really complex and emotional experience. I was blown, and now I have to get out for a walk to think about it. Great, great film and director.

  23. Aaron G.'s rating of the film Platform

    Amazing shots and use of sound, in particular music. Alternately very funny ("Pushkin"), chilling (the discussion of Piggy while learning to smoke), heart breaking (Cui's miner cousin), moving (the two bookending haircuts) and so much more. I've never seen a film better capture how much of life is determined by where (and to whom) you happen to be born. Never heavy handed. An absolute masterpiece.
