No Youth at Atlantic Times Square (the new movie, not the boba shop line)
Super artistic with the driest of humor and providing plenty to talk about afterward, Feng Xiaogang’s I Am Not Madame Bovary was one of last year’s best movies. Import or domestic, indie or corporate, period. We’ve been seeing the trailer for his new movie called Youth at Atlantic Times Square for a month or two, and it appears to be a gorgeous and brand new if not CW-inspired take on the dried-up topic of the Cultural Revolution. The super stylish mashing up of Fame and To Live looks amazing, right?
But the film’s release date in China has been postponed, presumably to avoid overlapping with the country’s most patriotic and politically uptight season, and so have its showings at Atlantic Times Square. Yesterday there were Friday listings and now they are gone! We’ll let you know if they reappear…
