It's not Kar-Wai's best work, but cast Tony Leung and Maggie Cheung in the leads, toss in subtitles and some of the same dissenters may be calling it his latest masterpiece.
i couldnt agree more here, it sounds like people are simply hating on it because it's not foreign, and the leads aren't perfect. kar-wai was graced with amazing actors for almost all of his pictures, and this film might be below his masterworks, but it by no means ruins the film or makes it unwatchable. people need to get off of their art film/hipster high horse to appreciate that kar-wai took a huge risk hiring a singer like norah jones to play the part and simply respect that he has the balls to take risks.
