About the Movie

Beginning with a mining explosion in Mongolia and ending in a ghost city west of Beijing, documentarian Zhao Liang’s visionary new film BEHEMOTH details, in one breathtaking sequence after another, the social and ecological devastation behind China's economic miracle. A Critic's Pick in The New York Times which called the film, "a feat of pictorial storytelling... Its haunting power grows in retrospect — as if you’ve returned from a journey and can’t believe what you’ve seen."

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: "Behemoth" proceeds placidly, making it easy to become lulled. Its haunting power grows in retrospect - as if you've returned from a journey and can't believe what you've seen. – Ben Kenigsberg, New York Times, Jan 26, 2017

Fresh: Despite such over-arty flourishes, the lensing never fails to drive home a sense of paradise lost, furthered by images with digitally created fractured lines, which represent the disruption of nature's gift. – Jay Weissberg, Variety, Nov 20, 2017

Fresh: The subtle impact of this contemplative documentary can't be denied. – David Rooney, Hollywood Reporter, Nov 20, 2017

Fresh: Much as Antonioni did in the petrochemical plants of northern Italy, Zhao finds in the coal mines and ironworks of Inner Mongolia a devastating, infuriating splendor. – Calum Marsh, Village Voice, Jan 25, 2017
