Probably the most breathtakingly gorgeous film of the year, dizzy with a nose-against-the-glass romantic spirit that has been missing from the cinema forever.
Stream In the Mood for Love
What are people saying?
What are critics saying?
Wong denies us the satisfaction of resolution, but in sharing his mastery of cinema, and his gift for conveying mood, desire and vivid emotions, he's more than generous.
Although In the Mood for Love isn't in the mood for action, it dazzles with everything but.
Shimmers and glows. But it also stings a little -- like the lovely flame that dies and the smoke that, in yet another Cole song, gets in your eyes.
A stylistically fastidious, exasperatingly affected package that will put most people in the mood for slumber.
In the Mood for Love has novelty value, I suppose, and plenty of pretty camera moves, but it's not really a movie you can warm to.
The film is alive with delicacy and feeling...It's a beauty.
This enthralling, enigmatic, romantic drama from Asia's most influential auteur (Chungking Express) is an essay in appetite and inhibition.
Smolders with more reserved passion than "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon."
A feast for the eyes and succor for the soul.
