Twenty Forty-six (2046)

Rating = C

Here was I said about a previous film by this director:
“In the Mood for Love”; Rating = B; Interesting film making with lots of interesting camera angles. Very moody. Ultimately, nothing happens, and it's not clear why not.
This film also looks great with lots of stunningly clear close-ups, shots through doorways, and rich colors. However, again nothing happens — for over two hours. And, despite nothing happening, the directory confuses us about who-is-who and when-what-happens. The scenes of the lead character's futuristic sexy novel could have been completely left out. The official reviews talk about the director's romantic view of missed timing in matters of love. This may be true, but mainly it comes across as self-indulgence. Drink lots of caffeine before going to this movie.
