Wong Kar-Wai’s beautiful ode to the Hong Kong of the 60’s, and its star-crossed lovers turned 20 in the UK earlier this year. I decided to re-work a previously published film essay (on a now defunct site) specially for Bobblehaus, for which I’m super grateful. In the Mood for Love is a cinematic masterpiece, and one that still haunts me to this day.

Still from Wong Kar-Wai’s ‘In the Mood for Love’ (2000)
