  • High Tech, Low Life has a nice easy rhythm. It feels neither hurried nor emphatic. There’s no narration. Zola and Tiger do most of the talking. show more

  • As far as its subject matter goes, the documentary only scratches the surfaces, only reaffirming the simple idea that Internet censorship in China is prevalent and unfair. show more

  • An engaging study of the disparate characters who are drawn to speak out when the authorities crack the whip. show more
