Shadow (2019), 115 mins.
Directed by Zhang Yimou.

With Deng Chao, Sun Li, Zheng Kai, Wang Qianyuan, Wang Jingchun, Hu Jun, Guan Xiaotong, Leo Wu. 

With Shadow, legendary visual stylist Zhang Yimou (Hero, House of Flying Daggers) once again pushes the boundaries of wuxia action to paint a canvas of inky blacks and greys punctuated with bursts of color from the blood of the defeated. In a kingdom ruled by a young and unpredictable king, a military commander has a secret weapon: a “shadow” look-alike who can fool both his enemies and the king himself. “A martial-arts movie landmark, as strong in its performances as it is spectacularly novel in its violence.”—Glenn Kenny, The New York Times
