Top Ten films of the Decade

The greatest film I saw in the past ten years was Wong Kar-Wai’s In the Mood for Love. 

When was the last time you saw a film that transported you to another place, another reality, another world. This movie does that -and keeps you there spellbound.

 

In the Mood for Love is by far Kar-Wai’s best film. There was not a better example over the decade of a film using the elements of pure cinema to create atmosphere, emotion and reflection. Certain segments of the film combines music and mise-en-scene to create astonishing results, carrying the viewer away into a dark, dreamy world where you are completely encompassed in the film’s universe. The rythm, color and pacing of the gorgeous, slow, tracking shots have a hypnotic effect which reaches for cinemas highest aspirations.

Other shots visually and metaphorically underline the films theme of distant, impossible love.  A true masterpiece of visual cinema.
