4.5 stars



Wong Kar Wai's latest film extends the mix of ravishing visuals, retro style and romantic fatalism that was so irresistibly established with 2000's In The Mood For Love taking us inside a complex narrative that explores love denied, lost and unrequited through its various characters, not to mention a segue into the central character's imaginary world, 2046, a sci-fi parallel to his own emotional condition. Visually, aurally and narratively dense, it comes close to sensorially and conceptually overwhelming its audience. Four years in the making, it is an awe-inspiring, albeit exhausting, achievement.
