i've just been watching some majorly sad movies. Grave of the Fireflies is so sad that you wanna hang yourselves afterwards. But it is oh-so-beautiful, the animation. In the Mood for Love is a beautiful romantic ballad. It's slow, but I like it that way, cuz it takes its time to capture images. There's a lot of Japanese elements to it, like focusing on everyday items to give the viewer a break from the sumptous imagery. Maggie Cheung and Tony Leung are absolutely fantastic (and very slick-dressed) in this movie. I LOVE the soundtrack to this movie. The theme song, Yumeji's version is hypnotizing. Nat King Cole's Quizas, Quizas is very romantic. Reminds me how superficial and meaningless Britney Spear's songs are. Sigh...
