Are you in the mood for love? The films of Wong Kar-Wai couldn’t be more romantic if they tried. He knows drama. He knows passion. He knows aesthetic style and has found many ways to evoke those vibes on movie screens for several decades. Still, not many casual movie fans have crossed the Pacific to discover the great filmography of the Hong Kong director. Let The Cinephile Hissy Fit podcast, sponsored and supported by the Ruminations Radio Network, help with that.
For their 49th episode, the Cinephile Hissy Fit was proud to host a special film event at the Majestic Tempe 7 in Tempe, Arizona this past week. Our own host Will Johnson joined CHF guest Ben Cahlamer for special in-theatre presentation of Wong Kar-Wai’s masterful and sumptuous 2000 romance In the Mood for Love. The audio from their post-film discussion has been uploaded here for you as a new podcast episode.
