    In the Mood for Love 2000

    ★★★★★ Rewatched 25 Jun, 2016

    "He remembered those vanished years.  As though looking through a dusty window pane, the past is something he could see, but not touch.  And everything he sees is blurred and indistinct."  
    -Kar-Wai, the poet.
    (Still perfection, somehow even more so on a bigger screen and the closest I'll probably ever get to seeing this in theaters. A, of course).

    Makes the mistake of centering the story around its least interesting character. This film felt like one man's story about how he overlooked every obvious sign of Marilyn Monroe's eventual drug overdose so he could sleep with her.
