Long Day’s Journey into Night

Sunday, Jun 30 - Saturday, Jul 20, 2019

Bi Gan follows up his knockout debut, Kaili Blues, with a stylized, color-drunk noir about a lost soul (Jue Huang) on a quest to find a missing woman from his past (Wei Tang). Following leads across Guizhou province, he crosses paths with a series of colorful characters, among them a prickly hairdresser played by Taiwanese superstar Sylvia Chang. When the search leads him to a dingy movie theater, the film launches into an hour-long, gravity-defying 3D sequence that plunges its protagonist—and us—into a labyrinthine cityscape. “Magical. An honest-to-God, how’d-they-do-that enchantment. Ranks among the great poetic and technical achievements in recent cinema. A full-body swoon of a movie.” – Justin Chang, Los Angeles Times. A Kino Lorber release.

Please note: The 4:00 p.m. screening on Sunday, June 30 is free for Members at the Film Lover and Kids Premium levels and above. All other New Release screenings are discounted for Members ($7 / Free for Silver Screen members and above).
