Described by film critic Jim Hoberman as “beautiful, terrifying, and determined to storm the doors of perception,” ‘Seeking The Monkey King’ is a furious beatnik analysis of the state of America, and a sensory rage against the horrors of capitalism.

  1. I have a plan for this weekend to see this movie and make contributions to the charity. I hope the movie would be as expected. Looking forward to the event!
