Format: Criterion Channel
Director: Wong Kar-wai
Still processing this movie. Stunning.
Clearly Hong Kong based and created melodramas are a bit out of my wheelhouse, but there's much here to admire, from the cinematography to the restrained, lovely performances of Maggie Cheung and Tony Leung.
I've been meaning to take in some Wong Kar-Wai movies for... about 25 years. Well worth the wait. I admit what triggered me to take a look was that Tony Leung will be in Shang-Chi, and I remembered "oh, yeah... some Wong Kar-Wait stuff is on the Criterion Channel right now..."
Anyway, will definitely watch again. Lovely, and I wish I'd seen it on the big screen.
My favorite trivia about this movie is that Maggie Cheung wore a different hand-made dress for every scene
I can only imagine when someone found out their assignment was "please dress Maggie Cheung in perfect period clothes for every scene". That's a hell of a gig.
