Following his tremendous critical success, like many other directors before him, Wong Kar Wai finally deciced to make the move to the USA. Unfortunately, even though the damned thing really had some potential, I'm afraid he delivered his least appealing movie so far. I mean, he definitely got a very a nice cast (Norah Jones, Jude Law, David Strathairn, Rachel Weisz, Natalie Portman) and they all delivered some decent performances. Furthemore, his directing was, as usual, quite gorgeous but, unfortunately, the whole thing still didn't really impress me. Eventually, I think it had to do with the fact that this director has actually a rather artificial approach to direct his movies but, so far, most of them turned to be quite spellbinding to watch so it wasn’t really a big issue. Unfortunately, this time around, it didn’t work very well and it even became bordeline boring to watch. I don’t know, maybe it was because the English language don't fit well with his style or maybe it was because the story was actually rather weak. Anyway, to conclude, in spite of its flaws, I still loved the directing and it is definitely worth a look, especially if you are interested in Wong Kar Wai's work.
