What sucks is that the film didn't do well in Cannes, and it caused a backlash where critics were suddenly wondering if WKW's voiceovers only seemed poetic because they were in Cantonese. Which is really unfair, I think.

I know I'm going to love it. Fuck the haterz.

I look forward to my WKW-a-thon after the Bond-a-thon ends. That will be great, as every film will be new to me.

I need to go back and look at your collective recommendations for what order to go in when the time comes.

I always thought his VO's were entirely sincere, Cantonese or not. Real people don't speak in perfectly written poeticisms anyway. Not to say his VO writing is entirely true to reality anyway, but I don't think it has to be. Reminds me of how Malick writes his VO, which not surprisingly is one of the biggest complaints from his detractors as well.

Chungking Express
Fallen Angels
Days of Being Wild
In the Mood For Love
2046

That's how I would start.


Hey, has anyone seen Ashes of Time yet?

And I'm currently trying to decide whether I want to watch Days of Being Wild again or Happy Together for the first time in a few minutes.

Tough decisions.

I'm waiting for the remastered "director's cut" DVD treatment they're currently working on for it. Should be out some time this year.

There's the first article I found just now. Not the most elaborate, but other mentioned re-editing material, newly composed music, and all that jazz. Apparently Wong is still bummed from the way it turned out originally.

And for the record, I agree with this.

Though I can't yet say where Happy Together should go in there, if at all (for a starters list I mean, of course, I'm sure it kicks ass).

It's in the WKW boxed set that I own, but I haven't gotten around to seeing it yet. Martial Arts fantasy? I'm worried. Doyle did shoot it though, so it has to at least look good.

Maybe I should wait for the Redux?

Very cool news.

That's my plan. From what I've heard all the current releases have horrid video and audio quality, which is a big reason for the demand of a new release. I watch a few shitty clips from this on youtube. I had no idea what was going on, but it was beautiful.

OK, I've decided. I'm watching Happy Together now.

Horray.

Happy Together.

Holy Christ. Wong Kar Wai and Tony Leung must be some kind of divine entities. I don't know how else they're able to do it.
