    -He visto pocos regisseure con un sentido estético tan grande como el de Kar Wai. El colorido homogéneo y muy cuidado, la música fantástica, los encuadres que muestran y a la vez esconden
    -Muy buenas actuaciones de todos los protagonistas
    -A pesar de ser una historia romántica bastante poco feliz, la película exhala sensualidad y la tensión que esta conlleva
    -Al igual que en The mood of love, se presenta el amor desde su perspectiva más esquiva. Como dice…

    I hate to say it, but this didn't do anything for me. I'm not sure if it's my relative unfamiliarity with Wong - having only seen Chungking Express - but everything about the heavy reliance on narration, the formless plot, and the endless parade of compositions split down the middle made my eyes glaze over. I hate to abandon an artist so many love so much without making my best attempt to puzzle out their attraction, so I plan to…

    Not knowing if this is true or not, this feels like Wong's most personal film, at least that I've seen--it has the trademark messiness of a personal narrative, the raggedness and occasional clumsy fit of trying to fit personal experience into a constructed narrative, and is explicitly about, among other things, the use of the creative process and fiction to distance oneself from and/or come to terms with their memories. This may be his LIFE AQUATIC (I mean that as…

    What I didn't realize is that this film is part of a series. The plot seemed a bit aimless, but there were a few tense dramatic moments. Really good soundtrack for a rainy day.

    Wong Kar-Wai is a director that speaks in my tongue. I'm a white, suburban, middle class, American (floundering in the cold post-collegiate waters of unemployment), who can't speak a lick of Cantonese, but in each one of Wong Kar-Wai's films I can't help but hear and see my world. The vibrant reds, the murky greens, the shimmering yellows and oranges - he reinvents the world (typically his native city of Hong Kong) and imbues it with such vitality that it…

    It just might be the best looking Kar Wai Wong film.

    I honestly don't remember this movie. I don't think it would be fair of me to rate it.

    Fantastic film that I think requires more than one viewing.

    More or less on par with 'In the Mood For Love'. Tony Leung, Gong Li and Zhang Ziyi act their butts off, but Wong Kar Wai and his cinematographer Christopher Doyle are the real stars. The "sci-fi segment" doesn't take up much of the running time, and arguably it should have been done away with altogether, because - a few stunning shots aside - most of it was really lame.

    Wong Kar Wai makes visually stunning and poetic films. 2046 is a sequel of sorts (WKW calls it an “echo”) to In the Mood for Love that explores similar territory from slightly different perspectives. It’s all about love and loss and there is a melancholy tone and sad beauty to everything that happens. While it may seem to be a bit of a science fiction film, the sf elements are a story that the protagonist is writing which is his…
