    On a first viewing the sci-fi aspects were too vague for me to fully appreciate, so I'm still not sure if I think they're useless diversions or interesting diversions. I saw the parallelism, but I'm not sure how much they add to the experience apart from a little flavor. The timeline alterations between vague and precise also tripped me up - as it is supposed to - and while I had it mostly straight by the end, it's the kind…

    Film #8 in My Wong Kar-wai Series

    With 2046, Wong Kar-wai continues the two separate stories composed in Days of Being Wild and In the Mood for Love in a very interesting manner, self-referentially playing with the fact that he used Tony Leung Chiu-wai in both films. This moves smacks of Tropical Malady, another one of the best films of 2004, in its reminder to the audience that the world of the diegesis and the world around those who view…

    2046 seems to be a film about desire, and the inability to fulfil that desire, amidst a slew of other seemingly related themes. As such the scene where the traveler interacts with the android seems metonymic in relation. As we enter the scene through a peep hole of obscured warm lights, which gives us the explicit feeling of entering the ‘internal’ of a human and as such we enter the emotional and personalized ‘experiential’ lives of those within, we hear…

    The wizardly craft that Wong Kar Wai posses in telling a story is still mystifying, but the acts are kinda dry, and the lead character is almost unbearable for me to root for him. Still, Wong instills his signature spell, which succeeds in most parts.

    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.
