In the Mood for Love

In the Mood for Love ★★★★★

Last night I was in the mood for loving In the Mood for Love.

The opening minutes, which I felt were jumpy and disorientating, did leave me fearing that I might not like this beloved classic though. But these fears diminished the longer the movie went on. As I kept watching I was bathed in more and more beautiful shots, beautiful moments and beautiful glances that exposed more than words could. The amount that was translated to us without the need for words really displayed the masterful control of Wong Kar-Wai.

I’m glad to have been in the mood for loving In the Mood for Love last night.

In hindsight, I think the opening was intentionally disorganised to show how unsettled our main characters were before they found each other.
