Wong Kar-wai Hong Kong, 2013

HKFanatic's rating of the film The Grandmaster

'In the Mood For Kung Fu.' A mournful and elegiac film that just so happens to take place in the world of martial arts. "The Grandmaster" has more in common with the work of Terrence Malick than it does the other Ip Man films to see release. While I doubt many would call this Wong Kar-wai's finest hour, as ever he displays a talent for capturing the bittersweet nature of a love that cannot be consummated.
