genuinely likable and strange characters explore their own little world in the city. it tells two loosely connected and captivating stories. the cinematography does a wonderful job at showing the interesting-ness (beauty isn't the right word) in overused public spaces, dim hallways, and run-down apartments. i only wanted to movie to keep going so i could experience more of this world and the people within.
To me personally watching Wong Kar Wai film is like a mental torture in the process. I can't be patient and somehow I'm lost with the characters that are seem out of my spectrum. But his film has post watching effect, followed by unusual life-changing realization. It's so weird.
