CinePassion

The too-neat screenplay doesn't allow for nearly as much improvisation as Wong's earlier Hong Kong reveries, but this impressionistic canvas is still profoundly sensuous and floridly vulnerable

Three years after 2046, Wong Kar-wai is not in love any more--and I for one am happy for him.

a languorously slow-baked affair

That's another thing about Wong: even when you're not quite sure what he's trying to say, or if he actually has anything to say, you get your money back in the beauty with which he says it.

El director de Con ánimo de amar y 2046 se traslada con éxito a Estados Unidos, donde filma una historia de amor sugestiva, íntima y encantadora.

Urban Cinefile

Wong Kar Wai's visual style with its evocative mood is the mainstay of this lament to love, although its rambling narrative detracts from the film as a whole.

The Age (Australia)

As visually lush and distinctive and enveloping as you would expect from a Wong Kar-wai film, with space for performances that have impact.

Consider it Wong lite.

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.

Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)

It's essentially a gloriously romantic film made by a very romantic filmmaker who can see beauty where none supposedly exists.

Deseret News, Salt Lake City

The ensemble drama has some modest charms, which includes a surprising, old-fashioned sweetness and interpretation of romance.

It's sweet and mostly satisfying, like a silky dessert at the end of a relaxed meal.

(Norah) Jones doesn't merely hold her own in a pouty screen debut of note; she looks comfortable and purrs with the confidence of someone who belongs.

PopMatters

Less sensuous than the pie à la mode, more nuanced than the doors opening and closing, cutting the cards might not change any odds, but it does offer an illusion of choice.

Fans of Chinese director Wong Kar Wai's dreamy, romantic films will find My Blueberry Nights a luscious treat, although newcomers to his world of sensuous longing will no doubt wonder what all the fuss is about.

Like the pies that give the film its title, My Blueberry Nights is really just a dessert, something sweet and mostly insubstantial.
