In the Mood for Love - Wong Kar-wai -Criterion Collection
Wong Kar-Wai is a director I hold close to my heart, and if you need a reason, this is why. Elegant, gorgeous and filled with the loneliness and longing of two people groping their way through circumstances and emotions. It burns like incense onto your screen.
A different vibe from ChungKing Express, but the same bold colors. Wong Kar Wai knows how to make a mood piece into a provocative narrative. It also helps that the leading male and female are sizzlin'!
This is Wong Kar-Wai, a man with a very distinct vision in his movies. I also love the music and the dresses she wears in this film.
