"2046" by Yojimbo
Wong Kar Wai's sequel to In The Mood For Love features the life of a writer in 60s Hong Kong working on a science fiction novel that reflects his own life and relationships. The visuals are as sumptuous as you would expect from Wong Kar Wai, with beautiful composition and use of colour complimented by a stunning yet skilled cast. For me though, the story engaged enough to keep me from getting bored but was little more involving than that. A series of vignettes in which two attractive people meet, don't fall in love and then part just did not involve or move me in any way. The film felt like over-intellectualized softcore erotica which although technically flawless, was probably just not aimed at my demographic; it may be a thinking woman's chick flick, but it's still a chick flick!
