In the Mood for Love

In the Mood for Love ★★★★★

you know what the funniest thing is? the fact that I only understood the plot of this film on the third watch, AFTER doing a lot of research on the film. the first time I saw that “let’s stay out a little longer” scene repeat twice, I was like, “wow how edgy of wong kar wai” but now I realised it’s them recreating how their spouses would’ve cheated on them. I gave it 4.5 stars on the previous watch anyway so that’s all that counts! upped to five stars this time though it’s what she deserves. and I can’t believe this film could actually replace chungking express/happy together as my second favourite film of all time. can’t wait to rewatch 2046, days of being wild and fallen angels and then have all of them as contenders for the same spot. I kinda hate the fact that I love wong kar wai’s films so much, I’m such a cliché
