Entertainment Reviews:

Empire - 05/01/2010
4 stars out of 5 -- "The unfolding events are portrayed with great skill by Chuan....It burns off the screen."
Sight and Sound - 05/01/2010
"CITY OF LIFE AND DEATH is anchored in a realistic reconstruction of the appalling events that occurred between December 1937 and the lunar new year of 1938..."
Total Film - 10/01/2010
4 stars out of 5 -- "In Lu Chuan's shocking take, the focus is on victims and aggressors."
New York Times - 05/10/2011
"CITY OF LIFE AND DEATH isn't cathartic: it offers no uplifting moments, just the immodest balm of art. The horrors it represents can be almost too difficult to watch, yet you keep watching because Mr. Lu makes the case that you must."
Los Angeles Times - 06/17/2011
"CITY OF LIFE AND DEATH is a cinematic experience unlike any you've had before....Both epic and intimate..."
Wall Street Journal - 06/17/2011
"A drama that could pass for a documentary, CITY OF LIFE AND DEATH re-creates the Nanjing Massacre....As an act of remembrance, thought, it is singular and, in its way, soaring."
