San Francisco Chronicle
Fan has visual panache - Last Train Home has some gorgeously composed shots - but he also has something that can't be taught: The patience and understanding to allow a family to tell their heartbreaking story in their own way. Full Review
A.O. Scott
The New York Times
Mr. Fan's documentary is informed by a melancholy humanism, and finds unexpected beauty in almost unbearably harsh circumstances. It tells the story of a family caught, and possibly crushed, between the past and the future - a story that, on its own, is moving, even heartbreaking. Multiplied by 130 million, it becomes a terrifying and sobering panorama of the present. Full Review
Carrie Rickey
Philadelphia Inquirer
Fan's fly-on-the-wall perspective enables the viewer to empathize with all the players in the family drama, unlikely to have a happy ending. Full Review
David Fear
Time Out New York
The attention to visuals is above and beyond what most vrit is capable of; doing double duty as the film's cinematographer, Fan demonstrates a pitch-perfect photojournalistic eye. Full Review
J. Hoberman
Village Voice
Everything is edged with desperation. However arduous Last Train Home may have been to shoot, it was infinitely more arduous to live. Full Review
