in the mood for film

One the films I’m looking forward to seeing is Wong Kar Wai’s follow-up to one of favorite films – the beautifully languorous, painfully honest and cinematically gorgeous In The Mood for Love.

His new film is 2046, and based on the initial version screened at the Cannes Film Festival, it continues his spin on sultry alienation, rapturous dalliances, romantic melancholia and his belief in the grace and pain of love. Leslie Cheung, Tony Leung, Maggie Cheung, Zhang Ziyi, Carina Lau and Gong Li (the woman responsible for my love for Chinese cinema) make up the cast.

This film cannot get here quickly enough.
