Bi Gan follows up his knockout debut, Kaili Blues, with this noir-tinged stunner about a lost soul on a quest to find a missing woman from his past. Following leads across Guizhou province, he crosses paths with a series of colorful characters. When the search leads him to a dingy movie theater, the film launches into an hour-long, gravity-defying tracking sequence shot that plunges its protagonist—and us—into a labyrinthine cityscape.
