In the Mood for Love ★★★★★

The duality of man is a concept that is very hard to grasp. This film presents it, in such a heart wrenching way. 

They are not those type of people. They don't want to be like them. To betray the love of your spouse for another; how could anyone do that? 

This film had two main themes for me. Disgust and desire. Disgust being one part of the duality and desire the other. How their spouses could come together was disgusting. Not in a physical way but in a morality way. Then comes desire, the driving force that wants to screw morality and enduldge in the comfort of another. These two opposing forces are also ironically essential for the other to exist. Without the loneliness that evolves from the disgust of moral failing, the longing for comfort produces a desire stronger than ever.

Those are my thoughts for now.
