    Gorgeous cinematography: the camera movements, lighting, and composition are some of the most masterful and beautiful I’ve ever seen. 
    But I found the story hard to follow and hard to care about: I like mood pieces, but it’s a little hard for me to get into it when the mood is “look how depressed, oppressed, or bored these people are,” and the atmosphere is deliberately stuffy and stifling.

    Fully thought this was a documentary til the lady from Twin Peaks showed up and I did the Leo DiCaprio pointing meme.
    Might have to chew on the docu-fiction format for longer but there are some very poignant moments. The monologues are almost a form of “anti-cinema” in the way they depict striking scenes through nothing but the characters’ own spoken description, it’s as if the director wants us to translate those narratives into visuals ourselves

    There’s this thing that happens to me when I’m reading a really good book, where I start hearing the author’s voice in my head as I go about my life, like my brain is trying to inhabit the author’s world and describe my experience through their eyes.
    Wong Kar-wai is one of the few directors that has a similar effect on me: this movie gave me an afterglow where the blues felt blue-er and the greens greener, the rain felt rainy-er and the pineapples more pineapple-y. Every time I get close to something I feel like I’m looking at it through a wide-angle lens
