In the Mood For Love (Wong Kar-Wai, 2001)

Cinematography: Mark Lee Ping Bin, Kwan Pun Leung, Christopher Doyle

Have you ever stopped to look at the film itself? I mean actually STOP. and look at it. Acknowledge it. Not its narrative, characters, or realism. The cinematography can be absolutely beautiful and breathtaking with it’s enhanced colours, deep compositions, shifting focus and subtle reminders. Cinematography does not shout, it whispers. And those that listen will discover a hidden beauty that flashes every 24 fames per second.
