||As Tears Go By (1988) - Sep 20, 2021
"wong kar wai's affectations make this by the numbers hk melodrama worse, not better"
||An Elephant Sitting Still (2018) - Sep 20, 2021
"Hu's death is a tragedy however this film is tiresome and repetitive, representative of the sort of grim art cinema legacy that Bela Tarr has left us with. i by no means want films to be 'digestible' nor need them to be 'fun' but these sorts of overlong depression films are becoming trite"
||The Spider and the Bee (2020) - Sep 12, 2021
"amounting to little more than a david lynch quarantine home movie project, it still showcases how lynch's trademark sound design can elevate even the struggle between a bee and a spider"
||2046 (2004) - Jul 24, 2021
"a visual treat, but an insidious film. it takes place during the HK riots of 1967, but the main character, an asshole in a Western suit, sits around in his room moping and writing a cringe sci-fi story. a Cantonese speaker, he treats a bunch of Mandarin-speaking women like trash. are we supposed to feel bad for him? what is WKW trying to say about the year 2047 and Hong Kong? there is much i would love if i didn't find the film so difficult politically to swallow. points for robot Faye Wong"
