Summary: Picking up where "In the Mood for Love" left off, 2046 is a visually seductive reverie of memory and regret, refracted through a serial womanizer's experiences with six women. (Sony Pictures Classics)
Certainly a treat to look at, with a great musical score. It failed to connect with me to any great degree, which I think perhaps was largely due to the slightly messy editing and structure. For me it never quite manages to compete with its epic sibling "In the Mood for Love". Even so, all the performances were great and all-in-all it's a very enjoyable experience.
Sumptuously sensual - the mood was truly beautiful. Very lyrical in it's slow meditation on how life refuses to work out as perfectly as a script. If only they could have handled some of the more gimmicky aspects with the same subtlety.
Fucking devastating. How do you make a sequel to the greatest film of all time? Well, you'd have to make it look as good (almost), you'd have to make it convincing (almost), and you'd have to make it either entirely outside of or inside of itself (inside) and you'd also have to have made the first one. Wong Kar Wai fucking rules.
While I think In the Mood for Love is a better film, I really enjoyed this one. It's just as gorgeous and graceful as its predecessor, with a very imaginative approach that makes up for its lack of focus and cohesiveness. The soundtrack is also very beautiful.
This movie is so amazing..... Amazing story, scene's, main actress, music.... Only for me is loss that I didn't watch it Fa yeung nin wa which is in some way first part of all.... Movie like this you can not watch every day.
For a film that has virtually everything going for it (a-list actors, top director, beautiful cinematography and exceptional score), the overall product was a bust. Far too tedious and long with no climax.
It's got a lot of style and a lot of interesting elements. Lovely cinematography backed by a great soundtrack. There are a lot of different sections, corresponding to different women and often it seems like there's no real method for switching between them. It's not awful for this, but can certainly be jarring.
2046 evinces a bolder vision for its romantically-challenged characters than In the Mood for Love but it's not clear that the combination of Wong Kar Wai's gorgeous visuals and his expansive story reaches the same heights of sensuality and emotional insight. Superstar Zhang ZiYi features in a number of scenes and during her screen time she is to Kar Wai as Gish was to Griffith, perfectly embodying his thematic concerns and emotionality. Leung is again excellent as the leading man.
