For all its balance and grandeur, 2046 is the most nervous of Wong's films.

2046 thus comes to encapsulate everything to which Wong (and, in turn, his audience) keeps returning.

The romantic fatalism is so lush that you're invited to get lost in it.

Quite simply an incomparably sublime work of art, a triumph of lyricism over narrative in the cinema, and the most exquisite homage to the beauty of women it has ever been my privilege to witness on the screen.

It may help if you grasp the many allusions to Wong's earlier films (including, notably, Days of Being Wild), but it's far from necessary. This, after all, is undeniably real cinema.

A languid, shimmering mood piece from a master stylist, with some of Asia's finest actors at their peak.

A visual feast, and it is very emotionally moving.

Cinema em Cena

Tematicamente óbvio e pouco ambicioso, 2046 é um filme que enche os olhos, mas que não tem muito a oferecer à mente e ao coração.

The fascinating visuals and performances by Leung and the assortment of actresses like Gong, Zhang Ziyi and Maggie Cheung ensure that the film is still worth watching.

Wong Kar-wai confirma, por si hacía falta, que es uno de los cineastas más precisos e integrales de la actualidad.

Wong's film has enough arresting images and intriguing characters that it manages to cast its spell, even though -- like Chow's relationships -- the magic doesn't linger.

"2046" feels like a lot of half-finished ideas all bound together with fancy ribbon.

Wong offers an artful meditation on the nature of love, making effective use of color schemes (yellows, greens and reds), placid shotmaking and diverse music to deliver a sultry portrait of postwar Hong Kong.

Wong composes shots as if he were squeezing drops of liquid narcotic into the viewer's eyes.
