Film Club Secret Cinema (Round 3): Primary Movie.
On a technical level, In the Mood for Love is a masterpiece. The cinematography is next level, there was some incredible artistic choices and the score was also really beautiful. Unfortunately I didn’t really connect with this as much as I thought I would, which is strange, because I definitely would’ve pegged this as my style of film (and I can totally see why my person picked this for me!). I’m not sure what it was, maybe it was the characters, or the empty feeling it left in me that I wasn’t digging. I’m not totally writing this off though, I’m going to make it a priority to rewatch, and hopefully it might grow on me a bit more!
