replicas don't have meanings
Wow. Just wow. Devastating. Beautiful. Heartbreaking. Truly magnificent. The amount of feelings Wong Kar-Wai captures in this film is done absolutely masterly, feels so personal, yet so far away. I have no idea what I'm talking about right now but I just know that this film has me feeling so many emotions that I can't even be coherent right now but I'm not even sorry about that. Just. Wow.
2046's disjointed narrative style comes through in a daze as it follows Chow's various love interests and one night stands years after the events of In the Mood for Love. The cinematography and directing are incredible and the film in itself seems like an epic undertaking into understanding love through its character's eyes. It intercuts the actual storyline with the novel the character is writing, and what results is almost poetic. The score is fantastic and even if the film…
Director: Wong Kar-wai (Third film)
Imagine that In the Mood for Love is a box. A little red box. With silk ribbons and a dim spot light obscuring half of it from our view. Now imagine (that 2046 is the untying) you untie the silk ribbon and pull, slowly opening the box and out comes a flood of colour which contrasts the sharpness of reality - almost burgeoning the locked away emotions which you tried to lock away…
Two Oh Four Six is a nightmare that haunts you.
Two Oh Four Six is a problem that can’t be solved.
Two Oh Four Six is a rehearsal after the performance.
Two Oh Four Six is an ideal that can never be realized.
Two Oh Four Six is endless reexamination.
Two Oh Four Six is a bird with no hope of purchase.
Two Oh Four Six is time out of place.
Two Oh Four Six is an excuse.
Wong Kar-wai knows how to emotionally destroy me.
Dice la RAE:
(Del dim. de bueno).
1. adj. grande (que supera a lo común).
2. adj. Lindo, agraciado de cierta proporción y belleza.
Pues eso. Kar-wai en estado puro. Un universo estético inigualable.
It is my opinion that Wong Kar-Wai is one of the greatest directors to be making movies right now. His masterpiece In the Mood for Love is easily the finest piece of cinema that the world has received from Hong Kong, and each of his films have a distinct mood that is enhanced by their atypical narrative structure and incredibly innovative camerawork.
And that right there is what this film is all about to me: a mood.
2046 explores themes…
In the Mood for Love: A Space Oddity
Lots of what makes Wong Kar Wai great can be found in 2046. Interestingly, I think it is his choice of connecting this film to In the Mood for Love, which has basically all of the best Wong can offer, that is its biggest error.
2046 picks back up with a bitter Chow Mo-wan after the trying times of In the Mood for Love. He does lots of womanizing and is not a particularly good person because he's not close…
Intreccio suggestivo e potente, contorto e complesso quanto le classiche e universali tematiche affrontate dal regista.
Il dolore e la melanconia di un ricordo che si confondono con l'ambizione e il protendere verso la ricerca di un futuro tanto emozionante quanto inquietante. Un flusso temporale dilatato fino all'eccesso che in realtà congela il racconto in un eterno presente.
La sensualità delle protagoniste femminili conferisce al film quel conturbante alone di mistero e di sconfitta, sappiamo già che questo viaggio non…
Jesus Christ. This is the work of a master, Wong Kar-Wai. I'm not sure if it's perfect, but I know it's a masterpiece. I know time will tell when I see this in glorious HD.
Wong is memorable, to me at least, with his visuals. '2046' is visually his best film. There's nothing quite like the myriad of lights surrounding a train to nowhere. There's a cool to this movie that…
