    The third and final instalment in Wong Kar-Wai's loose trilogy of films preceded by Days of Being Wild (which I have still yet to see, thankfully still able to follow the movies due to it being a loose trilogy) and In The Mood For Love. I understand there may have been a few characters that appeared in this movie that were previously in Days of Being Wild who's story arcs may have linked, so apologies if I don't completely understand…

    "I once fell in love with someone"

    It's difficult to decide on what to call Wong Kar-wai's romantic trilogy. While the previous two instalments were barely related in story, 2046 almost depends on the audience having already seen In the Mood for Love and Days of Being Wild. Call me a cynic but I also think this is a fitting analogy for describing the success of this film. While the previous two films were beloved due to their originality and…

    Time, love, and everything missed in between.

    “Why can’t it be like it was before…?"

    Director Wong Kar-Wai returns, in this sequel, to the life of Mr. Cho and his many loves following his first spark of genuine connection with Su (In The Mood For Love). A satisfying sequel that manages to not come off as completely lackluster in comparison to its predecessor.

    In 2046 he has created another visually stunning, atmospheric, and melancholy movie about unrequited love and loneliness…

    Whoops, didn't realize until after that this was a sequel to another Wong Kar-wai film. Kind of sucks as it definitely seems it was vital to better understand Tony Leung's character had I seen In the Mood For Love. Though I already get a much better understanding simply now knowing that, but it left me confused during the film, and thus quite a bit detached from certain aspects. Still a very beautiful and deeply crafted film on passionate love affairs with intrigue and beautifully complex emotion.

    It's a reductive analogy, but to me, 2046 is to In the Mood for Love what Fallen Angels is to Chungking Express, with my enjoyment about proportionally the same. Like Fallen Angels, 2046 is very much in the shadow of its predecessor, and although it works beautifully in snatches, it just doesn't achieve as much.

    Wong is, for me, an extremely exciting filmmaker, and both Chungking and In the Mood are among my favorite films of all time. But it's…

    This film is a loose sequel to ' Days of Being Wild (1990)' and 'In the Mood for Love (2000)'. Typical of Wong Kar Wai's films, it creates an aura of sensuality that captivate the viewer's eye. With its unusual storyline, this film is narrated in pieces interwoven in various time periods like Wong's previous films with some elements of science fiction and a beautiful background score. From tears to cigarette smoke, the camera immortalizes all. A must watch !

    Near the close of the film Tony Leung's character puts for the inquiry "why can't things be like they were before?" This sentiment has been approached in earlier romantic films and continues to asked in recent films, however, in the carefully crafted world of Wong Kar Wai, such an earnest question transcends simple explanation and becomes a statement on the nature of humanity at large.

    In the Mood for Love is an amazing film which I got lost in. What struck me most was the mood inflicted by soundtrack and cinematography style. While I don't thing 2046 hit the same spots, it still has the wonderfully intriguing style of director Kar Wai Wong.
    Copied from Rotten Tomatoes: He was a writer. He thought he wrote about the future, but it really was the past. In his novel, a mysterious train left for 2046 every once…
