THE COFFIN IN THE MOUNTAIN / 殡棺 (又名心迷宫) (2014) dir. Xin Yukun w/Huo Weimin, Wang Xiaotian, Luo Yun [119 min; DCP]
A striking feature directorial debut, THE COFFIN IN THE MOUNTAIN is an unflinching depiction of provincial entrapment where people’s lives are intricately intertwined through an accidental death. With an ingeniously constructed timeline, the film morphs from mystery to suspense and finally to irony.
