Here is the sentence
" Li in one of his interviews said that it is a film exposing the dark side of human nature rather than just simply criticizing the seamy side of society. There is a difference between these two. The former one is more profound and far-ranging applicable. "
By the way, I'm also not so sure if "far-ranging applicable" is suitable here. I wanted to say it is more profound and can be applied to many cases and situations. Thanks.
