Chasing Dream

Chasing Dream ★★★½

To’s individual setpieces of melodramatic spectacle are wonderful, remarkably staged sequences so eagerly imagined, a sense of dreamy excess reinforced as he manages to construct two strong enough main characters to keep the emotional bonding effective. Everything here can be easily diminished as overexposed farce and brightly lit affectation, but this has so much inspiration and mastery in its craft that I completely fell for its spell. Would give a good double bill with Chow’s ‘The New King of Comedy’.
