A film of wonderful looseness and innovation. Set free to film fakes, the director is the real thing.

With rich irony, The World juxtaposes the teasing, grand images of the outside world's wonders with the insular community and the mundane lives of the park employees.
It's a fine film, full of small epiphanies.
The movie is long and slow. Either you will fall into its rhythm, or you will grow restless.
It's a splendid microcosm of contemporary China's aspirations and shortcomings.
