Bi Gan’s LONG DAY’S JOURNEY INTO NIGHT is a sumptuous eye-popping film noir that features a groundbreaking 50+ minute single take shot in 3D. The film’s sensual style, which has shades of Wong Kar-wai’s cinema, establishes the 29 year old director as one of the most exciting filmmakers in contemporary World Cinema.
