City of Life and DeathThis is one that actually hit theaters about a week or so ago in China, so I’m a little late to the boat to promote it – but I live like seventy billion miles away so give me a break! City of Life and Death focuses on the rape of Nanking during December of 1937. It’s a topic that I can’t recall being put into cinematic form, and with a decent looking budget it could be something of interest. I’m expecting something disturbing and heartwrenching, and the trailer makes me think I am correct. Directed by Lu Chuan, director of Mountain Patrol and The Missing Gun – two flicks that are now also on my radar. You can see the oficial website for City of Life and Death here. It’s an interesting topic and the trailer is pretty striking, definitely check it out!
