The Bingo Long Traveling All-Stars & Motor Kings 1976

牛皮 Oxhide (2005)

2046 2004

If possible, I pick images for this diary that’re evocative of the movie as a whole. Here, I just really liked the juxtaposition with the Chungking Express frame below, and how it emphasizes the doubling inherent to 2046’s characters.

重慶森林 Chungking Express (1994)

Watched the 2021 restoration (with the weird credits) in theater.

All I wanted was to hear California Dreamin’ played at too loud a volume. Too bad it was balanced to be reasonable.

Buyer Walker Rover (Yiwu) Aka. There then 2019

Drop Dead Gorgeous 1999

Never Rarely Sometimes Always 2020

縱橫四海 Once a Thief (1991)

Woo is haunted by A Better Tomorrow’s Mark. Revived, then referred to as a known fictional character, and now found rolling across a kitchen on a skateboard. Mark is too fun of a character to not see his echoes everywhere.

@In the Mood for Love 2001

How do I watch this movie of Tony and Maggie cooking and dancing?

花樣的年華 Years Like Flowers (2001)

花樣年華 In the Mood for Love (2000)

Watched the 2012 Criterion version

T 2019

So good I had to watch it a second time. I sometimes get discouraged after watching several middling shorts, wondering if I’ll find something as good as my favorite feature length works. This is does that.
