Jia Zhangke China, 2000

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
