I really think that My Blueberry Nights is Wong Kar-Wai’s most underrated film. I don’t quite understand why many fans of WKW dismiss this movie as one of his lesser works. For my money, it’s classic WKW. I also think the road-movie structure works very well with WKW storytelling style. I love exploring the U.S. through his unique eyes. I also think the movie has some of his best character work. The cast is great and everybody gives natural, honest,…
From a narrative standpoint, this is pretty convoluted even for WKW standards. But if you manage to get into the rhythm this can still be a hypnotizing, sensual, melancholic and absolutely gorgeous journey into WKW land. 2046 almost feels like a summary of WKW whole body of work including many reverenced to his earlier films.

Eerie, tension filled and unusually structured Horror-Thriller from first time director David Prior. I found myself constantly immersed by this films story and atmosphere.

It is inconceivable by today standards that this film was not just a huge success, but also saved a major Japanese Film Studio from bankruptcy when it…
