Mountain Patrol (Kekexili)

Lu Chuan’s account of pauperized characters involved in a plexus of emotional transference and punishments of violent crime interpretively reenacted from a true story transpired in bucolic Tibet is an engagingly foreboding and unsettling melodrama of latter day isolationism. The Tibetan Mountain Patrol, a self-sponsored outcast regimen established to eliminate illegal slaughtering of endangered Tibetan Antelopes by impoverished local and out-of-province peasants, intimately engages with a half-Tibetan journalist from Beijing in a desolate depiction of human nature in the outskirts of Kekexili during a last resort campaign of portent and trial.
