    I like slow movies but I hate dull movies. I was able to watch all 7.5 hours of Satantango in one go and feel captivated the entire time. However, this movie, though being less than a third the length of Satantango, felt three times longer. It was a painful, grueling experience in the cinema and I should have left. I kept watching in the hopes that it would get better.

    It didn’t.

    I wasn't expecting this film to hit so close to home. Wong Kar Wai masterfully shows love and the isolation that happens after love is lost. I know what it's like to have thought you found the love of your life only for it to all go south. It makes every other relationship feel meaningless and futile. Escaping into one's own work, one's one fictional world, is preferred.

    Love is all about timing. It's no good to find true love…

    It's actually amazing how Doug Walker completely misread this film.

    I only watched the first 15 minutes of it but I watch the opening nonstop. Like Clockwork Orange style where my eyelids are forcibly peeled open and I have to watch Bane crash the plane with no survivors 24 hours a day 7 days a week. I based my entire worldview after that first 15 minutes. I don't know about anything that happens after that, but from what I've seen, this is peak kino.
