In the Mood for Love

In the Mood for Love ★★★★

i’ll definitely have to rewatch this one soon, as i feel like my distracted state of mind would fail in giving this its desired evaluation. still, i appreciate how delicately made it is; how it evokes a deep melancholy without ever slipping into despair or despondency.

i get the sense that it really might be a masterpiece as everyone says it is, but my current disposition makes me unfit to judge. i’ll give it a second try in the coming weeks when i feel better.
