I've been watching through most of Wong Kar Wai's films this last week and a half. They really are so so good. My favorite is "In the mood for love", but also "Chungking Express", "Fallen Angels" and "Happy Together".

In The Mood For Love

Fallen Angels

Chungking Express

Yesss, they are amazing films. In the Mood for Love is my favorite; the clothes are especially awesome.

They are great. Wong Kar-wai was my big movie discovery of the 1990's. I also like Days of Being Wild, which was issued in a new beautiful print a couple years ago. Also ditto Ashes of Time, his kung fu one. -Chris K

P.s. Of course Takesi Kaneshiro is the cutest Asian guy of all time, except for yours. ChrisK

I like DoBW too, but not so much AoT. The last scene in DoBW is so great.

I didn't like it but you might!

Aw that made me sad :( Too tragic, and usually I can't stand Thai gay films lol.

From what I've seen of Filipino and Thai gay films, I'm not sure it's for me. Maybe I'll check it out one day. Will there be hot naked asian guys?

i used to not like Lost In Translation because it looked like Sofia Coppola wanted to be Wong Kar Wai. And i also thougt Japan was such a caricature in this movie, but a friend who went there (i've never been) told me that the film totally catch this feeling of being a foreigner there because the culture is so different. So i don't know.
Anyway, in between time i've learnt to appreciate the good things in Lost In Translation, but i like Wong Kar Wai much better !

I think your friend is right. I only saw that movie after actually having been there, and it really had the feeling...

I'm not a cinema expert, but I don't get the same feeling from LiT than from WKW's movies though. WKW is so...mysterious.

I was not aware of these films but they look pretty good. Thanks for bringing them to my attention :)

My pleasure!

Mmm, better late than never. Young Takeshi Kaneshiro is so strapping. :)
16th-Jan-2010 03:06 pm (UTC)
Yes! Better late than never :)

OMG.. you also love WKW !? Am a WKW addict... :-) As a photographer you may also be interested in learning more about the man who WKW considers as "his eyes" ... Du Ke Feng, whose actual name is Christopher Doyle, a born Aussie who collaborated with Wong since the late 80ies. He is brilliant.
Oh btw.. if you ever visit Hongkong I will let you know where WKW´s fave resto is located in town. The dinner scenes in ITMFL with Tony and Maggie were shot there too (of course with adapted interior since the movie is based in 1960ies)... :-) ... and also.. the tango bar "Sur" in Buenos Aires (in Happy Together) really looks like in the movie... and finally.. if you go to Ushuaia, Tierra del Fuego, Argentina where the famous lighthouse (final scenes "HT") stands... you will only remember Taiwanese actor Chang Chen, the cute guy with the perfect hearing in "HT"... You see, once you fall for WKW.. it´s all too late.. haha..
Cheers, Bern

haha wow!

in a way it is nice to know these things, but it also takes away some of the magic of the movies for me...
