Wong Kar-wai is one of the most exciting and interesting contemporary filmmakers. Asian films made such an impact on world cinema in the 90’s, and Kar-wai is still riding that new wave with passionate storytelling, a unique approach to screenwriting, exhilarating visuals and a sophisticated cinematic language. His films are utterly romantic, thrilling in their constant movement, and somehow they always manage to capture a yearning and desire for the ecstatic. The longing, sorrow and sheer beauty of relationships is continuously explored. So long as we have talent like Kar-wai, cinema will maintain its vitality and freshness.
