In China They Eat Dogs (1999)


I thought everybody had seen In China They Eat Dogs. A recent conversation with a group of people proved otherwise.

This is something I have to remedy.

To me, this is more than a mere movie. It's the filmatic equivalent of the great novel The Dice Man, in that it will actually change your life. No longer will you look upon laws and regulations as chains limiting your actions in any situation. Like an uplifting motivational seminar, this film teaches you that you can do anything you want. And I do mean anything!

  2. As the original is so great, the sequel is worth watching just to see more of the characters. However, it was obviously made just to cash in on the success of the first film, and lacks the meaningful philosophies and perfect structure that made the original into a perfect film.
