Wong Kar-wai Hong Kong, 2000

msmichel's rating of the film In the Mood for Love

Essential cinema. Has the melancholy of desire and 'days gone by' ever been captured as beautifully? Wong's film is the perfect example of the marriage between exceptional editing (William Chang) and daring exquisite cinematography (Christopher Doyle). Sublime performances, remarkable artistry, moving score and such a gorgeous wardrobe. This is an elegy for love.
