    The surprise upon revisiting this is how well it works on video, despite the fact that half of its meaning for me is contained within the way that Wong frames things. The close proximity to the actors, though, feels right at home on video and the use of color is still as vibrant as I had remembered. A second viewing does mildly disappoint, inevitably, because you come into the film with knowledge of its radical rhythms. It's tough to feel quite as lost when you know there are only fifteen minutes and two scenes left...

    "I don't care if you love me or not. I'll love you anyway."

    The people that populate Wong Kar-wai's movies are quick to love but are cautious not to communicate it too openly. To do so would invite the threat of rejection. Instead, they often internalize their emotions and keep their guard up. Characters are liable to disappear as quickly as they appeared, or are flippantly discarded by their lover; some even share names with other characters. All of this…

    Director Retrospective Series: Wong Kar-Wai

    Sudden migraines and sickness alleviated by the illuminating cinema of Wong Kar-Wai. Escapism at its finest.

    Το 2046 το είδα πρώτη φορά στο φεστιβάλ Θεσσαλονίκης το 2004 -- είχα μόλις μετακομίσει σε νέο σπίτι. Το ξαναείδα το 2010, ένα μήνα μετά την άφιξή μου στο Gainesville. Χθες ήταν η 3η μέρα που βρίσκομαι στο Fargo, ergo 2046 ξανά. Αριστούργημα: κι η αγαπημένη μου ταινία σε όποιο "ξενοδοχείο" κι αν βρίσκομαι.

    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…
