"The first act, with little speech, manages to convey Qi’an’s social and emotional isolation in London expertly through wide shots and the cold colour palette. The expansive shots of the manor house itself are reminiscent of Zhang Yimou’s depiction of the Raise the Red Lantern mansion...(the) cinematography give the movie a creepy feel somewhat reminiscent of The Shining"

"...the film is gorgeous to look at..."

"What Susu does best is set the mood. Yixi Sun and cinematographer Jun Keung Cheung craft a lovely picture, capturing the pastoral countryside and the sprawling mansion. Full of striking imagery—including an early shot of Susu hanging herself with spools of celluloid that sticks with you—this is all about tone and atmosphere..."

"'Susu' is a very slow-burning gothic style dramatic horror film that is beautifully shot. There is a wonderful, creepy aesthetic throughout the movie that makes it visually compelling. It takes place in an old-timey English mansion full of interesting architecture, obscure paintings, and small artistic details. It's a nice film to look at, and it's obvious that director Yixi Sun had a specific vision that she and cinematographer Jun Keung Cheung managed to capture well"

"Dead Cat is a sweet and engaging film... The most noteworthy aspect being the warm, nostalgic looking cinematography. DOP Jun Keung Cheung is definitely one to watch"
Siobhan Callas@ Britflicks, Jun 2013
"Telling a post apocalyptic story of survival in the wake of a viral outbreak, the film is
commendable for the gorgeous cinematography..."
