Makes for gripping, merciless drama.
Blind Shaft, a well-acted and well-produced film, is a quiet though searing indictment of contemporary China.
Deftly swings to a spartan, engrossing climax, and the final twists spell out what the murderers are made of and the setting responsible for creating them. It is a true piece of film magic.
Blind Shaft means to leave the viewer dazed, and it does.
