Ashes of Time
I have yet to see a Sirk film, but I can't imagine his films to get more melodramatic than Ashes of Time. We all know that Wong Kar Wai is a visual master - this film doesn't disprove that. The story, however, is a complete mess and the editing doesn't help it. While many elements of the plot connected with me, I felt that the film was too disjointed to leave any lasting thoughts or feelings. A rare miss from Wong.
