there are hundreds of movies based on the cultural revolution in China. Why do people open their mouth about things that have no first hand knowledge but based on imagination?

No movies about 1989 though. Cultural revolution, plenty.

in addition to "to live", a more recent one "coming home" by Gong Li is outstanding. Made my eyes wet while watching it. Simple story line, wonderful acting , inspiring movie.

Thumbs up Chinas' top worldwide grossing films

"Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation" & "Transformers: Age of Extinction" are 2 current films the China Government has produced in collaboration with Paramount Pictures. In the opening credits it clearly states "China Movie Channel" (CCTV6).

HK cinema is dead. It died at the end of the 90's. THe golden age was like the early to mid 90's

Mainland cinema is mostly boring.

The only good one was the Opium war.
