Angels Wear White

List members might be interested in my review of ANGELS WEAR WHITE (嘉年华, Vivian Qu, 2017) for CINEASTE magazine. I analyzed the film as a cruel coming-of-age story in which girls are coerced into a femininity of objectification and victimization, and discussed the film’s use of the tropes of neo-noir and its avoidance of melodrama. Many thanks for your advice or comment!
