In the Mood for Love

In the Mood for Love ★★★★★

Of course Maggie Cheung looks beautiful in this film, but the gap between how she usually looks and how she looks in this film is smaller than the gap between what cigarette smoke usually looks like and what it looks like in this film. Chipped paint, rain puddles, and strip steaks round out the top five. 

Poor Siu Ping-Lam. Like Shelley Winters in A Place in the Sun, he’s the ordinary-looking actor that looks like the elephant man next to the two impossibly beautiful leads.

A magical film that lingers like cigarette smoke in Maggie Cheung’s dresses. (which doesn’t matter, because apparently her character has seventy-five)
