Ep 214: “My Blueberry Nights”

November 15, 2022

We devour Wong Kar-Wai’s “My Blueberry Nights” and discuss:

  • Music, keeping heavy moments light;
  • Cinematography, step-printing, lighting, reflections, shallow depth of field;
  • Story & Writing, the thesis and antithesis, stories of broken people, transportation as a metaphor;
  • and other such stuff and things and stuff.

We’re all unlucky in love sometimes. When I am, I go jogging. The body loses water when you jog, so you have none left for tears. – Wong Kar-Wai
