    I rewatched this on Christmas day with my good friend Jonathan, and spent the next few days trying to figure out how I would write about this film. Letterboxd has gone to shit over the holiday season, and so I finally felt motivated to start my own blog where I wrote an extended piece on the movie. I'd appreciate if it could be given a read, I'd transfer it straight here but I don't think it would look visually appealing on this site given its length, and I liked using stills to illustrate different points.

    Peak cheesy '80s Hong Kong romance with two beautiful young stars and the most hilarious plot convenience in order to work around straight up incest. Enjoyable in all its surface pleasures and occasional bouts of weirdness.

    I feel like Wong filmed bodies and faces—and captured longing—in certain ways here that he never replicated. Kind of a lightning in a bottle type film. Beautiful people afflicted with doomed yearnings. Totally adore it, could sink into and live in its atmosphere forever.

    Between this and Three Billboards, audiences at TIFF can screw off.

    Wasn't sure what to make of this at times but man when Shyamalan wants to pull the emotional strings it works on me every damn time. There are moments here involving Bernal and Krieps late on in particular which especially moved me. Also: this man's use of perspective here is just next level. Very invigorating to see filmmaking which is this creatively assertive.
