    In the Mood for Love

    ★★★★½

    A rainfall.
    A cigarette.
    A stillness.
    A longing.
    A silence.
    A love.

    I'm writing an essay on the role of Hollywood during WWII right now, so this was an incredibly valuable asset for me (my 20 pages of notes can attest to that), but it was also a great pleasure to watch. Some of the stories of the directors were absolutely fascinating, with the standout for me being William Wyler, whose story was riveting from start to finish. If you are interested in film history, WWII, or both, this is a must-watch.

    It felt necessary to watch this today. It wouldn't have been the same without you, Carrie.
