Definitely was the right time when I saw it the first time. This time around, harder to overlook the corniness, unoriginal story, and Greenberg’s flat performance (felt like an inter-season movie accompanying How To Make It In America).
Still, HK is beautiful, dialogue is sometimes ok, and I’m a sucker for the Before vibes (and stolen scenes), even when it’s just a worse version. What’s missing vs. the movie it’s clearly inspired by is the existentialism about time and space, identity and love, men and women, to go along with the quasi-profound small talk about life.
This time around, the sketchiness of what they’re doing was much more apparent to me. You also just can’t have an ending like that, what a cop-out
