Our weird weekend opens with a rare 3D screening of Bi Gan’s Long Day’s Journey into Night, a neo-noir mystery dealing with the slippery nature of memory. Gan’s film is a dreamscape of fractured time that leaps in and out of reality.
Luo Hongwu (Jue Huang) returns to his hometown, haunted by his past and desperately searching for his lost love Wan Qiwen (Tang Wei). Along his journey Luo falls asleep in a cinema, allowing the audience to connect with his memory and enter his dream reality with an audacious and spellbinding hour-long unbroken take, shot entirely in 3D.
