Truly remarkable movie. the soundtracks
have a true loneliness feeling in them.
Wong has become one of my favorite directors. He reminds me somewhat of Fassbinder in his prime,
Wong Kar-Wai's Happy Together, an improvised film about the tumultuous (even violent) relationship between two gay men set in Argentina. Tony Leung is as riveting as ever, though the story necessarily meanders. The director's work continues to both fascinate and mystify me, in part because I'm an improv performer myself, but there's a big difference between improv acting and improv directing (which seems impossible). That and he paints a nice picture. I was surprised however to hear some Frank Zappa tracks on there, as you don't often (ever?) hear his music used in movies.
