    I suppose Wong Kar-Wai just isn't for me...

    In the Mood for Love is an amazing film which I got lost in. What struck me most was the mood inflicted by soundtrack and cinematography style. While I don't thing 2046 hit the same spots, it still has the wonderfully intriguing style of director Kar Wai Wong.
    Copied from Rotten Tomatoes: He was a writer. He thought he wrote about the future, but it really was the past. In his novel, a mysterious train left for 2046 every once…

    "All Memories Are Traces of Tears"

    Wong Kar-wai's follow up to the impeccable In the Mood for Love is making a deeper impression with each viewing, and this time the narrative arcs seemed to become easier to follow than previously. Love lies bleeding in this intoxicating tapestry of time and space as memories and secrets possess and haunt the characters who revolve around both the year and the room 2046. Everything here is melancholic beauty personified.

    I had probably the strangest movie viewing experience of my life last night. I picked 2046 and Band of Outsiders virtually at random off my shelf, not even really having a good idea of what they were about. It turns out they both deal with restless people that don't quite fit in the time and place they find themselves in (with 2046's Mr. Chow literally creating a new universe for part of himself to inhabit). The thing I found so…

    "Take care. Maybe one day you'll escape your past. If you do, look for me"

    Wong Kar Wai does it again...this time he juxtaposes science fiction with the alluring 60's whilst using eye catching camerawork and melancholic background score...

    Tony Leung shines as the cynical,devastatingly handsome looks and subtle yet powerful acting...Ziyi Zhang smolders with seduction...love you :-)

    Although i am more inclined towards In The Mood for Love...this one's worth a watch...(tighter ending was needed to make this more memorable)

    The story of the one that got away, told in a million different ways, styles and narratives. I'm stunned by how beautiful it was. Wong Kar-Wai does it to me again.

    2046 is another beautiful film from Wong Kar-wai. Its revisionism of In the Mood For Love sometimes feels a bit unwelcome, especially as it plays out like an unnecessary release of the sexual frustration of its predecessor. The music and cinematography are flawless but it will never top his masterpiece.

    Bittersweet, is the word that keeps coming to mind. The sweet, ecstatic love of In the Mood for Love has been replaced by the bitter aftertaste of regret. In 2046, Chow has become a broken shell of a man, incapable of overcoming his past, his one true love. He uses and abuses the women of his life -- ironically the occupants of the neighboring room 2046 of the hotel in which he lives -- whom he desperately wishes would fill the emotional space that Su Li-zhen still dominates, just as they fill the physical space that used to contain her.

    Hard to believe this film's been around for a full decade. 2046 first screened in May 2004. Here's my post from 2005, when I finally had a chance to see it in America.

    Excerpt:

    Christopher Doyle's sumptuous cinematography savors the subtle grace of several fine actresses in a take-your-breath-away, "aren't-women-confoundingly-fantastic" kind of way. No film that this reviewer has ever seen captures the beauty of its actresses so artfully, with such spectacular style and light.

    Few films have ever concentrated…

    In the mood for sleep. Infumable, por lo menos si no has visto antes la que no sabía que era su precuela, "In the mood for love", que ya si eso me la guardo para cuando no pueda dormir.

    Everything that Wong is about culminates in his most conceptually ambitious project to date, 2046. The title refers to a metaphorical place of lost love and bittersweet memories. It may have been my drowsiness at the time, but the film itself felt like a memory; it felt like bathing in a warm, sad dream immersed in soothing strings, operatic vocals, and deep, dark colors; a dream wherein everyone speaks a different language but is never misunderstood; a place I, like…
