    Christopher Frayling said “All science fiction is about the year that it’s written," and that's true of the sci-fi elements of this misfire from Wong Kar-wai. The thrust of a story about Hong Kong in the late 1960s—an ostensible sequel to the wholly perfect "In the Mood for Love"—is periodically interrupted by interludes from a cut-rate mashup of "Blade Runner," "2001: A Space Odyssey" and a very bad commercial for LG wireless earpieces. This story within a story is meant…

    absolutely astonished coming in and out of this film. had no idea about the context of the work: only the title. to think that kar-wai crafted a sequel to In the Mood for Love that i feel is a bit better in comparison was definitely not something i could have ever imagined. the predecessor was a film so stylized, so tense, emphasizing the deep, palpable desire of the characters, in order to make it feel as if the frame itself…

    Sequel to In the Mood For Love, Chow writes a scifi book called 2046, based on his relationship with Lu and the two daughters of the hotel owner. Its a bit different than other of his films, definitely the most cinematic, but overall a bit lesser but still pretty good. Also Zhang ziyi is in it! The editing in all Wong kar wai movies is crazy wich is really fun to watch too.

    2046 is Wong Kar Wai's mysterious follow up to his masterpiece In the Mood For Love. While not quite reaching its predecessors incredible heights, it stands on its own as the director's most fascinating film. It's sexy, ambitious and on a scale unlike anything else the auteur has crafted. Deciphering what it all means will require several more viewings.

    That this is so good is very impressive since the plot is "guy lives in a hotel and has lots of girlfriends."

    Don’t like the character Mr. Chow has become, but Tony Leung’s draw as an actor, the history of his character and this being another aesthetics showcase for Wong Kar Wai, make this an interesting film albeit an unnecessarily convoluted one and one that I just couldn’t get into. I paused this film way too many times to distract myself or look up something about the film. Just look at the cast credits on IMDb.

    Mr. Chow uses first person narration…

    Velvety and tantalizing in every sense. The casting makes even the faces and bodies of the characters part of the world's supreme aesthetics. The experimentation with different frame-rates of slow motion, nonlinear and fragmentary narrative, and playful time-skips emphasizes the intemporality of the main character's self-inflicted loneliness. How the cinematographer fills the wide aspect ratio is of veteran ease. Although I am confused about the screen stretching.

    Not a fan of how every women…
