Stunning, simply stunning

One of the most beautifully made films that I've ever seen. Stunning cinematography, touching score, some brilliantly written dialogue and a brilliant on screen pairing of Maggie Cheung and Tony Leung Chiu Wai. Has all the elements of a masterpiece and no doubt one the most un-appreciated films that I can think of.One of my favourite films. Absolutely blew me away. Wong Kar Wai is an absolute geni... read more

Such great mise-en-scene, such great acting and the whole movie felt so poignant. It feels like you're standing on the precipice of a great love story, but never really found the courage to jump. When you're done with the movie, you're left with the slight regretful feeling of "what if".

Tragically restrained

A graceful, romantic defeatist wrestles with her circumstance aided by her neighbourly partner in crime.

Engrossing cinematography

"2.12. HBO Uusintakatselu. Enpä uskonutkaan, ettei löytyisi merkintää Listalin päiväkirjoista, joten ennen vuotta 2009 viimeksi ja silti se sama surullisen haikean kaunis tunnelma vain hiipi päähäni välittömästi alettuaan. Se sama tunnelma, jonka tuntee vain ajattelemalla elokuvaa tai näkemällä jonkun kuvan siitä. Eittämättä kauneimpia koskaan näkemiäni elokuvia. Pakahduttavan upeat kuvat ja oikealla tavalla tunteellinen musiikki eri tavoin raastavan tarinan päällä saava"

"Re-watch - Apr. 6th HBO Max This re-watch was inspired by Everything Everywhere All at Once. I didn't love it quite as much as I did the first time around, but it's still a really good exploration of longing and the ways two people might navigate being left behind by their respective spouses. I still feel like there are some things that could be better handled, but it's absolutely worth a look."

" Notes: In fact, I did see this flick in the movie theater when it was released almost 20 years ago and, at the time, it was a massive critical success so I had some rather high expectations. I don’t know, maybe I was too young but, at the time, even though I did like it, I can't say I thought it was great like everyone seemed to think.

" Date: 2/14/2021 Viewed: Criterion Channel Re-Watch Note: Happy Valentine's Day everyone and I hope everyone is having a wonderful day today. I felt like this movie was the perfect movie to watch for Valentine's Day. In the Mood for Love is still a fantastic movie in my opinion. I love the pacing and the atmosphere that this movie has because this is a movie that you can watch and chill after a long day of hard work. The atmosphere really sucks you into the story and makes you feel like that "
