In The Mood For Love Criterion Blu-ray

Posted By yonghow on January 8th, 2013

Very much enjoying Criterion’s handsome blu-ray release of Wong Kar Wai’s masterpiece In The Mood For Love. The film is a 2 hour long masterclass in cinematography, set, costume and production design, the works. And the images are just so hauntingly pretty, utterly mesmerizing from start to end.

I’m also enjoying the supplementary materials, including a new interview with critic Tony Rayns. I was also suitably impressed by both Maggie Cheung & Tony Leung’s impeccable command of English during the press conference at the Toronto Film Festival back in 2000.

Now it’s anyone’s guess if Criterion will go ahead and pick up 2046 for a future release.

after Akira, this is my favorite film of all time. i could go on for paragraphs, but there isn’t anything i don’t like about this movie. it was the first Criterion i ever bought when it first came out on DVD, knowing nothing about it other than it had something loosely to do with 2046, which i had picked up on a whim weeks earlier. it has continued to exceed my expectations with every viewing, and it remains a shining example of what film is capable of, both technically and emotionally.


Zack – Next stop, The Grandmasters. :]


i know, i’m so excited. i wasn’t a big fan of My Blueberry Nights, but it was kind of like it was just out of place. put that story in Hong Kong with Hong Kong actors, and it would have been great. in fact, he probably already made it like that. very excited for The Grandmasters. can’t wait.
