The Hollywood Reporter
The only thing might have added variety and richness to the film would be the inclusion of more dialogues or interactions with more than one person. Full Review
Derek Elley
Variety
Result is far more accessible than Jia's previous two pictures, with moments of genuine emotion by the real-life interviewees. Full Review
J. Hoberman
Village Voice
Jia Zhangke is one of the world's preeminent filmmakers, an essentially contemplative director whose considerable talent is further amplified by the significance of his material--namely, everyday life in the most dynamic economy on earth. Full Review
Joe Morgenstern
Wall Street Journal
The new film, shot in vivid hi-def video, is part documentary and part fiction based on interviews; it uses on-camera interviews with workers, some played by themselves and some played by actors, to evoke a past of unimaginable toil, and suffering, in the service of the Communist state. Full Review
