In the Mood for Love

In the Mood for Love ★★★★★

absolute masterpiece. an instant favorite. beautiful people yearning. wishing. pretending to ignore. the tension boils as do the noodles on the stove they share. they grow close through writing and role play. impersonations. flashing lights. apparitions. blurs. they whisper, “this is only the rehearsal.” this film perfectly captures the way one might recollect a forgotten love. or, a series of possibilities that never were. a film where men grasp for ghosts of the past in the ruins of the present. “nothing of that era remains.”
