In the Mood for Love

In the Mood for Love ★★★★½

Not what I expected at all, but I seriously mean that in the best way possible.

So damn well made on a technical level. The editing, saturated colors and unique camera movements are all to be expected from a Wong Kar-wai films and every aspect absolutely works here. The 2 leads are so phenomenal and almost every scene with them together is so emotionally moving. What a wonderful score too. SO GOOD. 

I really want to write more but I think I need more time to let this film wash over me. I’ll be rewatching it soon when I get into Kar-wai’s filmography. But yeah, new favorite romance and a new favorite in general.
