    Chungking Express

    On May 1, 1994, a woman wishes me happy birthday. Now I’ll remember her all my life. If memories ever come in a can, I hope that can never expires. If it has to have a shelf life, I hope it’s 10,000 years. 

    Hopelessly heartsick, unspoken feelings, wistful regrets of missed chances and unrequited love are things all too familiar for characters in a Wong Kar-wai film. It’s such a shame when you start falling in love that you don’t…

    Fallen Angels

    “As I was leaving, I asked if he’d give me a ride home. I hadn’t ridden a motorcycle in a long time. Actually, I hadn’t been that close to anyone for a while. The road wasn’t that long and I knew I’d soon be getting off. But at that moment, I felt such warmth.”As each day goes by I realize I’m living in a Wong Kar-wai world. A world full of beautiful, lonely people longing for connection or just that…

    In the Mood for Love

    “Feelings can creep up like that.”

    It’s as simple as that. It’s a funny thing how circumstance can bring you together and keep you apart like Chow and Chan’s relationship. WKW routinely showcases the passage of time when it comes to heartbreak. Minutes turn to hours which turn to days then all of sudden it’s been a couple years. That’s why I find the back half of this film so poignant. “But I don’t brood over it. It’s not my…

    Birdemic 2: The Resurrection

    HORRORx52 (2022)
    2. Lowest rated horror on your watchlist

    “Nice to meet you.”

    “Don’t you know that birds are the descendants of, uh, dinosaurs?”

    What a shitshow. Physically hurt to watch. It’s everything terrible about the first yet somehow worse. At times it felt like director James Nguyen was playing into the unintentional comedy that made the first one such a cult classic. Once you get into the realm of purposefully making a bad movie I instantly hate…

  • Thief


    The Criterion Challenge 2022
    24. Made in the United States

    Michael Mann, man. His brand of brooding is my favorite. Thief is a classic “one last job” crime film, but with a director of his calibre at the helm it’s special. We’ve never shortchanged on visuals with Mann. He incorporates the perfect amount of neon aesthetic against a seedy nighttime city backdrop. I could live in this film look. The icing on the cake is Tangerine Dream’s amazing score.…

    The King of Comedy

    So glad to have finally watched this as it’s been my #1 anticipated Scorsese watch. The King of Comedy is a dark comedy that I didn’t find all too funny. It’s more of a sad tale of what a struggling artist goes through when trying to break into the competitive entertainment world. Sometimes talent isn’t enough. Luck seems to be the only constant in life. Don’t get me wrong, De Niro’s character is no saint and there are some definite…
