The music, cinematography, colour palette, and editing, all coalesce so perfectly. It creates this palpable sense of cognisance on behalf of the audience. We both know how much these characters are in love with each other, but they have no idea. And the montage at the end is just majestic. How the hell did Dancer in the Dark beat this film for the Golden Palm?
sex scene isn't necessary when you can sense all the desires with only through eye contact
if i could marry this film, i would. it's been a month, and still can recall all that slowmo-scene-with-yumeji's-theme, and oh! the ending keeps haunting me till now.
I've also never seen a film with such a pure sexuality in it. Watching it a16, it was the first time I realized sexual impulses and attraction could be natural and beautiful, instead of perverse.
I saw In the Mood for Love around three years ago and I've thought about it every few days since that viewing. Even thinking about the slow motion sequences with Yumeji's theme, gives me goosebumps. It's like remembering a beautiful song and being moved by it even though it's only playing it in your head.
It's wondrous how Kar-Wai put so much sex in a movie that haven't any sex scene. It's one of the greatest atmospheres I've seen in a movie of that decade.
One of the quintessential films of the 2000s, Wong Kar Wai's intoxicating ode to unrequited love about two neighbors whose cheating spouses draw them into a world of friendship and unspoken longing. Gorgeously directed and hauntingly realized, IN THE MOOD FOR LOVE is one of the most beautiful films of the past decade, a stirring and emotional exploration of feelings lurking just beneath the surface.
Great music, great cinematography but "Brief Encounter" already has them with a greater story. as a result, it is overrated. If this movie is a masterpiece, Brief Encounter must be the best movie in cinema history. Diyor ki; müzik ve görsellik şahane de güzel kardeşim, Brief Encounter aynı temayı konu alan bir Avrupa filmi olarak bunlara zaten sahip. "Olgun akıma övgü" yaklaşımını abartmaya lüzum yok.
Kar-wai at his best,successfully delivered one of the best romance drama about the longing and distance between two individuals. Stylish as usual and builds up in perfect mood. Masterpiece!
Masterful direction - Wong Kar-Wai's movement of the camera is downright Ophuls-like. And the story started out very intriguing, but eventually my interest did begin to waine a bit. I didn't find it as intoxicating as nearly everyone else I talk to about it, so I will accept that this lack of connection is probably on me. That being said, of the three of his films I have seen, this is my favorite.
