The Iron(ic) Chef
We also watched a Wong Kar Wai film, Chungking Express (Chong qing sen lin, 1994), which was engaging. Wong Kar Wai is an acclaimed director, and the first movie of his that I saw -- with Eliza the film buff -- was In the Mood For Love years ago. Later on I watched Happy Together, and this film was in the same league. Wong Kar Wai definitely has a distinct direction style, and the dialogue in his films is both humorous and touching.
Chungking Express is one of the titles delivered yesterday to Eliza from Zip.ca, a site that lets you choose DVDs online for a monthly subscription price. There are no due dates, and you always have 4 titles on hand. We're splitting the fee and watching as many films as possible! Now I can finally catch up on some of my movie-watching!
