This past Saturday, Lisa and I met up with our friend Nick to watch Wong Kar Wai’s 2046, which I think we were all pretty blown away. Visually the movie is just gorgeous, and the story was really fascinating. I think I appreciated very much how the story wasn’t so obvious, how it all really interweaved together between the many characters, and how there was room to explore the characters and the story with the imagination. I also really liked how there was such an attention to details, and how subtle many of them were, really enhancing aspects of the characters and story in a very elegantly done way. We all also liked the music and use of (and sometimes the non use of) sound.
All in all, a very beautiful and touching film. I’m looking forward to whenever next I’ll be able to see this film, as well as exploring Wong Kar Wai’s other films.
