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.
