Off Set 2018 TIFF Portrait Series: Hidden Man

Off Set 2018 TIFF Portrait Series: Hidden Man

We first discovered Jiang Wen in Zhang Yimou’s Red Sorghum (1988), and so it was with a certain delight when TIFF announced that Yimou’s Shadow and Wen’s Hidden Man would make their preem entries in Toronto. The Sixth Generation filmmaker pulls double duty once again with this sixth future which receive a Gala Presentation at the fest and will surely appease fans of his previous two entries in 2010’s Let the Bullets Fly (review) and Gone with the Bullets (2014).
