Last weekend, Long Night’s Journey Into Night opened at the Film at Lincoln Center and Metrograph in New York. It was sold out on Friday night and almost impossible to get a  ticket on Saturday night. The combination of Art Theater and 3D attracts not only the New York intellectuals but also young people of all races.

This weekend, the film will be screened at LA’s The Landmark and Laemmle Playhouse7, Ithaca’s Cornell Cinema, Toronto’s TIFF, the Brooklyn Nitehawk Cinema and Alamo Drafthouse. All cinephiles shall come! The ticket purchase link is attached below.

After last week’s screening, I asked everyone how they felt about the film. American arthouse film lovers usually like Andrei Tarkovsky’s reference. Some viewers shyly told me that they were sleepy during the film. They fell into a dream with the protagonist in the cinema and got lost in the slow-paced story. 

Some viewers said that they have seen the film three times. They were very obsessed with the 12-minute 3D long take. The dream fragments the events in reality and makes a collage of them. The process of revealing the reality is like a game. And the sound design is impressive.

The most mentioned is one coincidence in the long shot: the horse is shocked in front of the camera, so the apples on its back fell to the ground.  This accident strengthens the reality of the movie world.

In fact, all of the above are ways to access a movie. Director Bi Gan said:

“Don’t be afraid to get a little lost while watching.
It is a gentle, quiet film.
If you can give yourself over to it,
you’ll find answers in all that your eyes absorb.”

Regarding the atmosphere of the film, he said:

Just when you think it is a film noir,
it turns into a fairy tale.

The director is willing to dream with the audience:

“It is a film about dream and memory.
When we dream, it feels so real.
Yet when we wake up,
we are left with nothing but fragments.
It is my hope that this is the feeling
you will have while watching my film.”

The complete short video recorded by Director Bi Gan for the North American audience will appear at the beginning of the film screening ( with English subtitles), so don’t be late!

The North American film critic recommended Long Day’s Journey into Night and everyone should go to the cinema to experience this fantastic dream.
