Languid Visual Poetry

Diamond Sutra (2012) - Bi
So Kaili Blues was not some fluke. Bi Gan's short, Diamond Sutra/The Poet and The Singer, before Kaili charts the same trajectory - a road movie essentially, about two criminals, there are poetry and singing and boat ride involved. All seemlessly, effortlessly mingling together. Its languid visuals and otherworldly beauty is really something to be experienced. Bi really understands cinematic language and visual poetry. Can't wait to see Bi's next project.
