End of an era, for sure.

Article I read said Goro Miyazaki is working on an animated TV series, so there's that, at least. And I really enjoyed Tales Of Earthsea and Up On Poppy Hill.

So Miyazaki was too big a draw and they can't pay their staff without his hugely successful films? It's really sad. Takahata at least is always good for a strong film.

From what I could tell, they're not finished, but they're not going to have a full staff on hand any longer, going back to having freelance workers, should they find a project to work on in the future.

Most important takeaway for me is that the museum isn't going anywhere. I want to go back there someday so bad.

Ok, which Wong Kar Wai film should be the first of his I'll see?

Wasn't expecting that response. That's the one I want to see once, besides Fallen Angels.

His work really lends itself well to a chronological program (you can skip As Tears Go By for now, though it's also good).

And view Chungking Express and Fallen Angels together if you can.

Days is definitely the gateway to the "mythology" of WKW, as it has loose connections to In The Mood For Love and 2046.

If you're looking for something lighter, Chungking Express is very entertaining and is really the film that put him on the map here in the U.S., and Fallen Angels contains material that was originally intended to be part of that film, so it's a loose follow-up.

EDIT: slightly expanding on what Lance said above.

In that case, I think we're going to watch Chungking Express tonight and Fallen Angels tomorrow night.

Chungking Express is maybe my favorite of his these days. Can't really go wrong there.

Really?

That's a little surprising. Probably his most uninteresting film from a visual perspective.

I'm not sure I'd agree with that. I mean, it's certainly not as spectacular visually as Happy Together or In the Mood for Love or something, but its colors are out of this world, and I think it's got more energy in it than anything else he's done, in terms of camera work (Fallen Angels is even more kinetic, but I'm not a fan of all the wide angle close-ups there). Anyway though, it's the one, along with ITMFL I come back to most often, and it's just so damn joyous and hopefully romantic, and it moves unlike any other film I've seen.

Energy, sure. And it's fun, and romantic. But it doesn't scale the heights of the later works. Or Days Of Being Wild.

I enjoy 2046 the most of all his work, but I tend to favor the more ambitious projects of directors I admire so much. And I think he excels in his period work more than the contemporary stuff, and William Chang certainly has a lot to do with that.
