My Blueberry Nights






Director - Wong Kar Wai

Genre - Drama/Romance


It's often when we are in love that we reveal our absolute, true selfs. That's when we are most vulnerable. Not when we are battling aliens or giant apes. Wong Kar Wai has been trying religiously to capture these moments of absolute truth in all his films, and he has managed to make compelling works of art every time. Singer Norah Jones in her debut as an actress is captivatingly better than Madonna ever was in her many films pretending to be one. An elegant American romance with substance.

4 STARS!

Well maggielurva, that's your forte!
Anyway we like Cat Power's minimalist style and ethereal vocal though.
