Wong Kar-wai Hongkong SAR van China, 2004

xiaoyue's rating of the film 2046

"love is all a matter of timing," states a film in which time is illusory, elliptical, constantly calling back and calling forward. how there is nothing more beautiful than something never truly realized. wong kar-wai, the brutal sentimentalist, has somehow created two hours in which love and time play off of each other like furious performers in a red-hued duet. when the music fades, poetry remains.
