光影筆記本 97 / My Blueberry Nights

Such a stylish film. I will write more after I watch it again. It makes me think a lot about images, about being stylish, and about portraying feelings/emotion using scenes rather than words. I also just realised that Cat Power is in this film too. Of course! How could I not have recognised her!!!


A Wong Kar-Wai film.

J: At the end of every night, cheesecake and apple pies are always completely gone. The peach cobbler and chocolate mousse are nearly finished. But there's always a whole blueberry pie left untouched.

E: So, what's wrong with the blueberry pie?

J: There's nothing wrong with the blueberry pie, it's just that people make other choices. You can't blame the blueberry pie. It's just that no one wants it.


I don't know how to begin
Cause the story has been told before
I will sing along I suppose
I guess it's just how it goes

But if you don't try
The light won't hit your eye
And the moon won't rise
You fall inside

a song by Norah Jones.

hi, thanks for following my silliness (blog).

i've linked to your blog but dunno how to 'follow' it. i was about to flag it but that's not a good thing.

hope this Wong Kar-Wai film is going to be released in english too (here in TW).
