I am big fan of WKW so I really enjoy reading it. The book is formed by interviews between writer and WKW. There are some personal/intimate questions connected with movies, that part was something new for me. All the movies have been analysed but in a way that everybody can understand them.I would recomend it to anyone interested in WKW's movies. Wonderful photos!
...but a wordy movie book, which is what I wanted and fits. Other "recensionists" have said, this book is a "must have". I agree. Its a smartly conceptualized and nicely written retrospective from the internationally renowned film director, whom I really like for his visually and atmospheric films. Wong Kar Wai's films explore—in saturated colors, skillful cinematic scenes—themes of (often unfulfilled love, longing, and the burden of closeness). The book is structured as six conversations between Powers and Wong (each in a different locale), including the restaurant where he shot "In the Mood for Love" and the bar where he shot "Chungking Express". Discussing each of Wong’s eleven films—from "As Tears Go By" and "Days of Being Wild" to "2046" and his latest "The Grandmaster", those conversations also explore also the roots of the movies in his personal life. It is a book -by- Wong Kar Wai as co-author and an opening critical essay by Powers. It provides a comprehensive look at his work with more than 250 photographs and film stills, good as reference, however the print reproduction differs a bit form the lavish colors and magic of his movies. This film book is worth its money.
El mejor libro para fans de WKW. Este libro es un viaje por la mente del director, por cada una de sus películas. Si lo tuyo no es leer este libro también es para ti, el libro se encuentra repleto de imágenes de todas sus películas. El papel es de buena calidad al igual que las impresiones. No podría recomendarlo más para los fans del director.
Un libro imprescindible para los amantes de este cineasta, y del cine en general. Incluye fotografías de gran calidad entre las que hay muchos fotogramas de sus películas, textos que repasan la historia y la obra de Kar Wai y entrevistas exclusivas con él.
