Monthly Movie Journal: March 2011 (45 movies items)
Never seen a Kar Wai Wong film before, so wasn't sure what to expect going into this one. Taken in its individual parts (performance, cinematography, music, etc.) I found a lot to enjoy and marvel at. Yet somehow, by the end I was left vaguely disappointed and without many intense feelings one way or the other. I blame the final 25 minutes or so of the film for much of that, which seemed to rub much of the shimmer from the brilliance I saw in the first half.
