The marketing of the film was met with major controversy after its opening. The marketing of this art film was targeted massively towards the general public, instead of art film lovers. The film opened on December 31, 2018 since it was the last day of the year and it was intended to be "a good event to celebrate the new year". It was estimated that a lot of people went to see the film without knowing that this is an art house film. This resulted in major backlash as netizens complained against the film, as well as calling the ones who appreciated it "jia wenyi (phony-artistic)". The film earned 38 million USD on the first day of opening, yet the box office of the second day was decreased by 96%. See more »

What a load of crap! This movie is trying so hard to pretend being a very DEEP and profound philosophical interpretation of life and its inescapable fatalism. The guy who chained smoking all through the whole movie, didn't show any intelligence to control his life and fate; a guy who actually a certified born loser. The screenplay was so awkwardly one-directional boring by the meaningless and pointless narration of the hopeless loser, whose narrative about kept dreaming of a woman that he didn't even know her name or anything else.
I have to ask the movie makers: What was the purpose of making this pointless movie? By implementing a camera from all different angles to tell a hollow story of nothing to pretend its depth of the life of a Chinese nobody was just the stupidest way to waste time and money.
If you got nothing to tell, then don't even try it. Reviewers who said this movie was so profound and absolutely loved it, well, you can say whatever you like, but just don't try to fool me. Under the whole cart of rotten apples, there's a gun hidden underneath; that's deep, man, very deep...............
I don't know why suddenly the Chinese writers and the movie makers all became so pessimistic and obsessed the fatalism; first, we got "The Wandering Earth", the Chinese people were trying so hard to move the Earth away from the inescapable gravitational force of the Sun; then again, we got another fatalistic movie here, "Di qiu zui hou de ye wan", if translating word by word into English: "The Last Night on Earth"; just because the guy who got trouble to find or locate the mysterious woman he met long time ago or just a mysterious female in his wet dream, he shouldn't think that night would be the last night of the Earth or, his last night on Earth.
Jesus, Fatalism, Chinese style, is so trendy recently, man.
