2046 - It's seductive yes, as a movie...

Wong Kar Wai is seductive, 2046 was shot in 2004, I only remember the scenes are seductive, the lines/no lines are sexy, the color was well used, the clothes (okay, I love all the clothes chosen there), the film is distant, roles are all detached but connected, and being detached is elegant, in a lot of cases ...                                                        

8am CET, Jane called and told me it's Wong Kar Wai films review festival in my city, I found this movie back, on a rainy Sunday, it's probably not a good start of the day

The entire story is just telling ho7.jpgw to forget about a woman, the journey took him a half life time to meet more women, fall in/out of love, hurt/get hurt, looking for the signs on every women to enhance his memories about her rather than forgetting her... love has a lot of symbols, if you want, you can always link 1 to another, you can always create an illusion to fall in love with your own love imagination, if you want, you can always create some pain to feel you're alive, people do it always anyway...

Romance must be dead when they meet my logic - 'why do they not realize they don't really remember that person, they just remember how they felt when they told themselves to remember that person...' 'I'm going to talk to Nancy now...' - She can't buy in my comment, as a literature major, this mommy of a 3 years old still has deadly serious romantic dreams...

Back to the movie, 11 years later, I still feel the production is very arty, classic, beautiful and full of seduction, but at the end, it's a movie, isn't it? ...

It's good to be classic, but not old fashioned ...

It’s a message I got when I approached my end working hour today, from a friend in Zurich…how to be successful to hit on girls in bars …. Well he actually really started by sharing an online article ‘12 ways to make you look smart in work emails’, probably had a bad day at work … most of the tricks are so old fashioned there, I have seen them every day in my work, it’s like expired tin food, boring, to death…

‘So you don’t like the trick used to hit on you?’

‘Well, it’s good to be classic, but being old fashioned is a different story.  When you know exactly what’s going on in the numerical game for example, it’s no longer a fun game, but if you then convert that into Sudoku, that becomes classic, then excitement can be reproduced… if you follow … ‘

… Speechless, I guess my brain is structured in a particular way, and often bring the conversation out of planned route… But I would expect him to come back with something out of box though, some creativity, rather than 'that's an interesting concept...'

While waiting, a new message from Shang Hai: when you are going to book your airline tickets???  --- shouldn’t Shang Hai be sleeping by this hour?
