It's certainly beautiful to look at as director Wong Kar Wai employs three cinematographers, and the unconventional approach makes for an unpredictable experience; however, it's overwhelmingly uncertain about where it's going and why. It gave me the feeling that it was shot without a script as if the images and beautiful actors were thought of as enough to sustain momentum. A mild recommendation for those who can appreciate films that exist in a slow universe. Final Grade: C+

This was actually my first KWW. And, ironically, a movie that was rented because of the sci-fi content. So, in a way was thanks to my favorite genre that I discovered who's probably the most important director of the past 20 years. 2046 comes directly from ITMFL, wich gives to the movie a great aspect on the continuity issue. The poetic tones, the soundtrack (always great in KWW flicks) and the acting are all worthy of every second and penny you would spend on this one.

2046 is so beautiful it hurts to watch. Stories mix up with each other, but the thing that's always there is main characters unhappiness. What was his greatest lovestory? Dramatic and beautiful music, and I also really liked costumes in this. 2046 is just BEAUTIFUL.

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!
