    Perhaps the world doesn't need another picture on disaffected youth, but Pleasures is about more than alienation.
  2. The story goes nowhere...We don't understand the motivation of the characters.
  3. This sequel to Jia's excellent 1997 drama "Xiao Wu" is less original and absorbing than its predecessor, and less visually impressive than "Platform," his 2000 look at Chinese sociopolitical change.
  4. Reviewed by: David Rooney
    As lethargic as the characters it portrays, the film requires greater staying power than many audiences will possess.
