"The bird that never lands goes down a path of self-destruction".
Probably my least favorite but still a good movie. Visuals are great but characters seem slightly boring compared to other Kar-wai films.
Classic Wong Kar-Wai. The way he makes you feel all the characters feeling and emotions in such a subtle way is unreal.
Fantastic way to debut the dreamy haze that Wong has made his signature, and surprisingly one of my favorites of his so far.
Amazing camerawork and photography, delightfully poetic and overall a masterpiece
Visually stunning but pretty lacking on the script side.
the beginning of a trilogy and of a mood, it's like taking off
Wong Kar-wai is underrated as a gangster filmmaker
A nice and peaceful film, Wong Kar Wai is developing his drama style. The sequel is even better.
An atmospheric film, with great cinematography and direction, but was a bit unaffecting due to the bland characters.
