Is this true? It is likely that the Chinese film industry does produce relevant political films. However, the western states do not import them, contrary to Chinese jeans, mobile phones, etcetera. Another obstacle is that people are rarely interested in both politics and cinema. Undoubtedly this negative correlation pertains also to the members of PoFo.

There have been 10+ major Chinese films produced since this studio sprung up, all in the $50-$80 million range. The most expensive of which is coming soon (great wall with Matt Damon). Not to mention many Hollywood collaborations in which the primary financial backers were Chinese studios (see Warcraft).

Beyond this, keep in mind China has a 20 foreign film quota, so the other 100+ films released into mainland cinemas every year are domestically produced. Most don't make it abroad, beyond the really big budget stuff and collabs mentioned above. However expect this to change completely by 2020 since half of US cinema capacity (~6,000 screens) were bought by Wanda Group as of 2016.

Such as? I'm only asking to add them to my 'To Watch List'. That is, if they were well-received.

Liberal capitalism is not primarily a social ideology. By its nature it adapts to disparate cultures (its nature being viral mutability). The other aspect of its nature is liquidationism - it assimilates, co-opts, or destroys all competing ideologies. In the US this has particularly true for local religious cultures. Capitalism hasn't had time to completely erase the lingering Confucian meritocracy tradition, but its demise is inevitable.
