Blueberry Nights pics!

I have a love-hate relationship with Wong Kar Wai. I think he's probably one of the most visually stunning directors out there, but I just can't seem to come to grips with the plots of his movies. I know that this is a purely personal thing, but it still nags at me when I get excited about MY BLUEBERRY NIGHTS. The pictures HERE are just as beautiful as you'd expect, so head on over to see Rachel Weisz looking typically gorgeous, Jude Law being all dreamy, and hall-of-fame hottie Natalie Portman looking... well... bustier than usual. That might just be me, though. Anyway, the movie is Wong Kar Wai's first English language picture, and you can be pretty sure that even if the story isn't fantastic, the visuals will be so seductive that you don't really care.

I'm so pumped about this movie...
The thing about Wong Kar Wai movies is that, the plot can be a little more difficult to get into just cause he works with such a loose script in most cases and crafts the movie after in the editing room. I find that's what makes his movies so beautiful though cause they have a dreamlike/haunting quality - and he manages to shape the movie into something with actual arcs and interesting things to say generally about love/loss of love/missed connections,

I think this can alienate people of course cause looking for a concrete storyline in his films is going to be a frustrating experience and kind of...elusive. I just let myself get swept up in the experience and not worry about the plot too much and I usually find myself transfixed. I often find his films are some of the most romantic because they refuse to pin down concrete storylines, etc...

And it took me a while to really get into his style (I dug In the Mood for Love a lot the first time I saw it but my appreciation of that film has grew exponentially since that time...I think if I had seen 2046 right around the time I saw In the Mood for Love I would've found it boring and frustrating, but I only saw it this past year and it turned out to be an incredible experience)

Anyway, this is at this point my most anticipated movie along with His Dark Materials of this year.

The best news here I think is that JoBlo is reporting on Cannes himself again! That's so damn sweet, I'm really excited to see what he thinks of all the films (especially this one)...
