Asserita la qualità della regia, poco rimane da fare se non stupirsi davanti all'intreccio narrativo piacevole e brillante. Ho storto il naso al primo cambio di protagonista ed al calo di tono del passaggio da una storia all'altra, dal momento che sia Kaneshiro che la sua amata risultano di gran lunga più affascinanti delle loro controparti, ma ciononostante ho apprezzato il soggetto. Mettetevelo sulla lista.
A child of the digital age, truly. Kar-Wai’s romantic yearnings show through powerfully, but are not as refined and perfected as they would be in his later “In the Mood for Love.” Spotted a wonderful little Hitchcock homage involving blonde wigs and green lighting.
Well, this is the first time I watched a movie from Wong Kar-Wai. I know nothing about Chungking Express. I just knew from a video - and there was Quentin Tarantino talked about how much he loved this movie so much. IMO, Chungking Express is one of the sweetest movie I've ever seen, yet it's beautiful. Christopher Doyle's camerawork is amazing. It's hard to listen "Dreams" without mimicking what Faye Wong's did...
Undeniably stylish and cool but maddeningly messy and pointless. Very loosely following two would-be romantic couples, except none of the four players are particularly likeable and their romantic fates aren't remotely compelling. Frankly, I just didn't care no matter how cool it looked. This one gets a C.
