Purely by coincidence, “Angels Wear White” bears a striking resemblance 
to last year’s “Florida Project”, a film I nominated for best of 2017. 
Like “The Florida Project”, most of the action in “Angels Wear White” 
takes place in a motel—in this instance on a seaside resort in southwest 
China’s that is bathed in light. Like Sean Baker, the director of 
“Florida Project”, Vivian Qu’s film revolves around two women dealing 
with class and sexual oppression. Baker’s characters were a single 
mother forced into becoming a hooker out of economic desperation and her 
six-year old daughter who is the charismatic gang leader of the motel’s 
bored and restless children. Finally, like the “Florida Project”, 
“Angels Wear White” is an outstanding film that has the inside track for 
my nomination of best foreign language film of 2018.
