Directed by Wong Kar-wai
My crush on Brigitte Lin continues to intensify after watching this film. I want to check out her other movies, but I might have to wait until I am free agent (i.e. done with this List).
The film tells two separate stories that barely connect to each other. The first plot follows a Taiwanese cop as he attempts to get over his ex girlfriend. The second story involves another cop, who was also recently dumped. Bitches be crazy. He catches the eye of a girl working at a snack bar, who has some...unconventional ideas about starting a relationship.
Obviously, this film intends to be disjointed, although it is hard not to feel jarred by the sudden shift in stories. I would have liked to have seen more of each story; it seemed like the first one ended right when things were about to heat up. I guess if a movie leaves you wanting more, it does its job well.
So one to check out, but not the most satisfying film I have ever seen.
Wong Kar-wai based Brigitte Lin's character on Gena Rowlands and Greta Garbo.
