Li Tianxing is a cross-border all-round director, cross-border independent film and commercial film, cross-border film production in all aspects, cross-border film, and television, with good results. Li Tianxing has the highest achievement in independent film art, and he is good at constructing the psychological alienation of Chinese men and women in modern cities with simple and cold mirror language. In terms of cultural expression, Li Tianxing has constructed a "denationalized Chinese imagination space", which is very different from other Asian new wave directors who pursue the expression of distinctive national identity.
