In the Mood for Love

In the Mood for Love ★★★★★

I just couldn’t pass on seeing this on the big screen. All the rich textures of the sets and costumes, the nuances in the performances, the beautiful colours coming together in this layered tale of love and imagination and restraint — all that projected in a cinema just makes it all the more incredible. 

That ending gets more and more devastating every time I come back to it. I remember the first time I saw it those images and sounds were immediately imprinted on my memory, and revisiting them only makes their depiction of utter sadness and lost time so much more painful. 

“I thought we wouldn’t be like them.”
