Cinecast #37: Still In The Mood For Love
Tuesday, 13 September 2005 01:00

As challenging to discuss as it is to summarize, Wong Kar-Wai's intricate new film "2046" sees the celebrated Hong Kong director exploring familiar ground -- romantic obsession and unrequited love in 1960's Hong Kong (see: 2000's "In The Mood For Love"). Although Adam and Sam disagree on how successful the director is in achieving his lofty ambitions, they agree that he and his trio of cinematographers create some of the most beautiful images they've seen on screen this year. Cut from the broadcast: a 30 second exchange between your hosts as they debated the correct pronunciation of "Zhang Ziyi."

Also on the show, we kick off the "Western-a-Week Marathon" with some thoughts on "High Noon." Plus, Listener Feedback, Massacre Theatre -- presented by Movies -- and a look ahead to Friday's Top 5 Foreign Films.
