Movie Inspiration - Wong Kar Wai's "In the Mood for Love"

More movie inspiration posts. This movie cemented me being a Wong Kar Wai fan. I saw Chung King Express when i was 18 and I liked it, I have to watch it again because when you're 18 you're a dumb@ss and don't even know what you're seeing. I've also seen 2046 (i fell asleep) and Fallen Angels. I just watched My Blueberry nights, his latest starring Nora Jones. Although a beautiful movie, It wasn't so hot. So to keep your faith in Wong Kar Wai alive here are some of my favorite captures from "In the Mood for Love". A beautiful, colorful, painful and long movie. Maggie's dresses are amazing throughout the movie. The soundtrack is the bomb, he uses 3 Nat King Cole songs in spanish! It also some great string pieces. The Cinematography in this film is on point! So are the shot compositions. he doesn't rush anything. A visually inspirational movie for me.





I am an analogous color schemes guy so i'm really into this



check out the red on green! in the wrong hands it would end up all christmasy.






i am also into patterns and maggie had on many amazing Qipaos (i just learned that word here in china)

Nice. Loved the film, we're WKW fans too.

Never seen any WKW, though someone had recommended 2046. Any other film/makers you recommend from a composition perspective?

I got around to seeing Darjeeling Limited and it was awesome, aesthetically and otherwise. Wes Anderson really seems to be doing his own thing. The only other film-maker that Ive seen put that much effort into compositions was kubrick, but his compositions always took me out of the movie for some reason.
