Jia Zhang-Ke (Platform, Unknown Pleasures) extends a stinging rebuke of urbanization and globalization in this visually dazzling tour-de-force. The film's setting is World Park, a Beijing amusement park full of kitschy attractions and chintzy scale-models of global landmarks. It's within the confines of this bloodless cultural wasteland that the park's employees drift like displaced persons, searching desperately for meaningful human connections. Filmed with a flamboyant visual style reminiscent of Tati, Je's fourth feature is truly a marvel. "The best new film I saw anywhere in 2004" (Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader). In Mandarin with English subtitles.
