    This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Another rare opportunity to see an amazing film before it was released in the US or Canada.

    Kar-wai Wong's highly effective and equally experimental film is connected to his previous cinematic triumph, "In the Mood for Love" but it is not anywhere near the genre of a "sequel."

    It is instead a continuation of the male character's life long after his love has left Hong Kong. Tony Leung's "Mo-wan" has become a gambling and heavy-drinking lothario. He no longer seems…

    Holy shit... what a film. Wong Kar Wai has fucked up my feelings once again with this beautiful film about love. What Wong Kar Wai does so well, that he portrays perfectly in this film, he shows love and affection between his characters so well. He never has to force it with cheesy dialogue, sex or nudity. Just the way these characters look at each other, the way their body language is when around each other. He makes it feel…

    Just when you thought Wong could go no further in honing his craft after his opus In the Mood for Love, he releases this stunner that builds upon its predecessor's themes, then blows them to pieces in what is likely one of the most welcome existential explorations of time and memory.

    "In love you can't bring on a substitute."

    If I was asked to describe this film to someone, I would simply say that the film is like a dream. Beautiful, surreal, melancholic and unreasonable. It's far from the ordinary, but still, it feels completely real and authentic.

    The film is basically about moving forward, and how we're attached to the past, even though we can't alter it. The films "message" is told through symbolism, so it's not easy to give…

    I love Wong Kar-Wai, I love Tony Leung, I'm in love with Faye Wong, so it's not a big surprise that I also love 2046. It's not quite Chungking Express or In the Mood for Love, but it's not too far off. It's just as visually pleasing, and the way the love story is told is imaginative and interesting. Wong makes some of the best romantic films I've ever seen. Highly recommended!

    I once fell in love with someone. She had somebody but yet we met every week as if we could have avoided the world by just being together. I tried not to fall in love with her but feelings can creep just like that. It was too late. One day she disappeared from my life. I jumped into 2046 hoping to find her there. I did. But she found an indirect way to reject me. I took the chance Chow…

    It's his most muddled and scattered work that I've seen but i still find it engaging and ultimately moving. its power lies in looking at it as a reaction to ITMFLs reception

    After the subtlety of In The Mood For Love, Wong Kar-Wai drops the feels with 2046. It starts off great, but gradually becomes more and more tiresome, its plot progressively looking more like a soap opera. The direction is flawless and despite everything, there are still some fantastic moments towards the end of the film, but I can't help it to feel disappointed after the other two films of the trilogy being so good.

    πιο αργό κι από χελώνα, που έρχεται από την Αμερική, με το ένα πόδι σπασμένο. Νταξει τουλαχιστον φοράει χαριτωμένη κορδέλα στο κεφάλι.

    Like Days of Being Wild, this one is a grower as well. But in this case, my feeling grows from indifference to something of a mild affection. Minority opinion as it may be, but I feel like Wong Kar-Wai's precision from In the Mood for Love has turned into something so repetitive to the point of being debilitating, at times approaching a parody of his own style. I think it's not a coincidence either that I have this feeling about…
