Wong Kar Wai

Wong Kar Wai is a truly visionary director. He is internationally renowned as an auteur for his visually unique, highly stylised, emotionally charged films. His films often feature short lived romances set amongst a turbulent backdrop, frantic and highly charged in a thoroughly enjoyable way.

I was introduced to Chung king express by a certain Liam Palmer and despite laughing at how he found it from an amazon Listomania i was suitably impressed. And when you pop in a chinese version of Dreams by The Cranberries you know you're on to a winner.

Following on from his very successful Chung King Express i watched In the mood for love and again was amazed at his brilliance. I strongly recommend checking out his films, pretty darn special.
