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.
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.
Fresh: The subtle impact of this contemplative documentary can't be denied.
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.
