"Modern Times" is a series that Patrick Tsai shot in China, before the 2008 Beijing Olympics. Coming after his intensely personal project "My Little Dead Dick," these snapshots are a much more objective body of work. Still, there's a strong sense of humor here, which is helped by the inventive editing.
