    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.

    I suppose Wong Kar-Wai just isn't for me...

    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…

    "All Memories Are Traces of Tears"

    Wong Kar-wai's follow up to the impeccable In the Mood for Love is making a deeper impression with each viewing, and this time the narrative arcs seemed to become easier to follow than previously. Love lies bleeding in this intoxicating tapestry of time and space as memories and secrets possess and haunt the characters who revolve around both the year and the room 2046. Everything here is melancholic beauty personified.

    I had probably the strangest movie viewing experience of my life last night. I picked 2046 and Band of Outsiders virtually at random off my shelf, not even really having a good idea of what they were about. It turns out they both deal with restless people that don't quite fit in the time and place they find themselves in (with 2046's Mr. Chow literally creating a new universe for part of himself to inhabit). The thing I found so…

    "Take care. Maybe one day you'll escape your past. If you do, look for me"

    Wong Kar Wai does it again...this time he juxtaposes science fiction with the alluring 60's whilst using eye catching camerawork and melancholic background score...

    Tony Leung shines as the cynical,devastatingly handsome looks and subtle yet powerful acting...Ziyi Zhang smolders with seduction...love you :-)

    Although i am more inclined towards In The Mood for Love...this one's worth a watch...(tighter ending was needed to make this more memorable)
