Entertainment Reviews:

Entertainment Weekly - 08/12/2005
"[A]s a cinematic bath for the senses, it's a rush, a swoon."
New York Times - 08/05/2005
"[A]n unqualified triumph....Mr. Wong makes movies, still a young art, that create meaning through visual images, not just words."
Premiere - 02/01/2006
"[A]n immersion in visual and aural beauty flecked with emotional colors that would be too painful if they dominated all the movie's frames."
Uncut - 01/01/2006
Ranked #18 in Uncut's Best Films Of 2005 -- "A subversive, multi-layered epic from a master filmmaker."
Entertainment Weekly - 12/30/2005
Included in Entertainment Weekly's Top Ten Films Of The Year -- "[A] pool of movie beauty in which to submerge."
Movieline's Hollywood Life - 01/01/2006
"Wong is a man of reckless ambition, and 2046 is his mega-epic, a crazy, heart-crushing romantic monster of a movie..."

Product Description:

Director Wong Kar-Wai's style reaches its fullest expression in his stunning film 2046. Picture-perfect period sets and costuming, finely wrought atmosphere, languid shots, glamorous cigarette smoke, amber lamplight, and allusions to film noir. 2046 is a meditation on memory, eroticism, love, loss, and longing which surpasses the director's beautiful, widely acclaimed IN THE MOOD FOR LOVE (2000) in terms of formal ambition and visual sumptuousness. With its intriguing, layered structure, the film follows the adventures of Chow Wo Man (Tony Leung), a womanizer who is writing a science fiction novel about a future year in which all memories are suspended. The film shuttles between the BLADE RUNNER-like world of Chow's futuristic novel (complete with androids and other metaphors of emotional disconnection) and late-'60s Hong Kong--where Chow writes from a hotel room, and engages in relationships with a series of beautiful, complex women (including the luminous trio of Gong Li, Zhang Ziyi, and Faye Wong). The film also journeys to Singapore and through the increasingly mysterious corridors of the protagonist's memory.

2046 resists tidy plot summaries with its disjointed, zigzagging construction. Yet, coupled with Wong's rich cinematography and dazzling formal techniques, it is as fluid, associative, and labyrinthine as memory itself. Sliding between keenly detailed realism (Wong's camera can capture the subtlest flicker of emotion in a characters' eyes) and lavish, expressionistic metaphor, the film is a deeply entrancing experience. Even given its jumbled, sometimes chaotic narrative, 2046 creates a poignant, emotionally charged, and richly rewarding experience.
