    LONG DAY’S JOURNEY INTO NIGHT (Bi Gan, China, 2019) 3

    I’m not as allergic to long takes as Mike d’Angelo is, but when it’s in service of naturalism, not this kind of ostentatiously-high-degree-of-difficulty stunt. The last image involves a sparkler, and I was wondering whether it was actually the same one we’d seen earlier (it’s dramatically supposed to be the same one). As easy as it’d be to rag on the show-offery though, Bi had me bored stiff long before then. To riff off Mike’s phrase that these long takes make him think more about the human beings behind the camera than the ones in front of it ... I only WISH there were human beings in front of the camera to be distracted from. JOURNEY is so uninflected it felt like an opium or other drug haze. I have no doubt this is deliberate — Bi slows everything down and (I’m pretty sure) scrambles chronology. But I don’t find my own drug hazes pleasurable and trying to make sense of someone else’s is insufferable. I could hardly keep track of what was supposed to be a flashback, who meant what to whom, what the stakes were in this journey to his father’s hometown. The moment the film lost me for good was a gangster doing some kind of karaoke performance in a ruined place while someone is tied to a ceiling. “Where are you, Michael Madsen?” I asked myself, and then the scene ends without having gone anywhere. Another typical scene involves a glass of water rumbling across a table, thanks to a train. Neither character seated at the table thinks to do anything, and then it falls off ... CUT before we see or hear any shatter. Unfortunate STALKER comparisons aside (and this film’s physical plant often looks similar) I just threw up my hands: “What the hell was the POINT??”

Want even more consensus?

Skip Rotten Tomatoes, they’re biased SJWs too afraid to criticize things like the Ghost Busters reboot. Avoid giving them ad revenue by using the minimalist alternative, Cinesift, for a quick aggregate:
