  1. I didn’t say it in the comments on my RotS article but I’ll say it here: I worry the same thing will afflict the criticism of this film: that it won’t be valued visually but aurally, in terms of dialogue, and will be judged based on the critic’s own interpretation of What A Film Should Be. Not, of course, what it is. If it doesn’t work, okay. But my guess is WKW is talented enough to make his films work. I haven’t even seen many of them but of those I have seen, each one has worked. And some are just plain amazing, like <>Happy Together<>. <>Chungking Express<> is pretty good, too, but I’m also a huge fan of <>2046<>; even moreso than of its predecessor, <>In The Mood For Love<>.


  2. The Kino WKW boxset is one of my most valuable DVD collections, even if the individual DVDs (being Kino) aren’t especially good. I am a WKW fan and the hate he’s seemingly getting from all quarters (check out < HREF="http://davekehr.com/?p=182#comments" REL="nofollow">this thread<> at Dave Kehr’s blog) is really inexplicable to me. < HREF="http://blogs.suntimes.com/scanners/2007/05/karwai_oh_why.html" REL="nofollow">This post<> at Jim Emerson’s blog has totally flummoxed me. He walked out after half of Chungking Express!??!#$%
