Wong Kar Wai

Saw a screening of Wong Kar Wai's THE GRANDMASTER last night. He was in attendance with the DP - which was the best part of the evening. Good conversation on picture/framing/color/tone, working with actors, script and improv, etc.

He's one of my favorite filmmakers, and I always find inspiration with the look of his films, the camera movement, the framing and the blocking. Always creative.

I liked the Grandmaster, but it didn't work as well for me compared to films like DAYS OF BEING WILD and IN THE MOOD FOR LOVE.
