Tony Leung as a "hedonistic, mustachioed sleazeball"

Waah... the Guardian says 2046 will screen at the Odeon West End on October 29 and 30 as part of the London film festival, and goes on general release in January 2005. Wonder if it'll be showing here, someday, in the far off future-- or should we just rely on the pirates of Quiapo?

In 2046, Chow has returned to Hong Kong, but this softspoken man has become a hedonistic, mustachioed sleazeball. He has numerous one-night stands and earns extra money hosting dinners for low-lifes and letting out his room to their women. Still a writer, Chow is in the midst of penning a science-fiction novel set in the year 2046 - hence the title - on a train where people go to recapture their lost memories, but never return.

Full story here.

    Well what a relief knowing that now. Thanks! Heehee, it's also strange how these foreign publications are just now putting out reviews of Infernal Affairs, Hero, etc., when we saw Hero 2 years ago on the big screen and Infernal Affairs on DVD for quite some time now. I knew Tony Leung was some sort of pop singer. I don't love Tony Leung that much that I'd search for that cheesefest film with Faye Wong, but if a copy falls on my lap, great then. ;)

About us

Best described as a Murakami detox support group, we're all fans of the quirkily brilliant Japanese author, Haruki Murakami, and writing about such things as films we've seen recently and books we're reading (not to mention meandering musings on the man's work, of course) helps us to pass time while waiting for the next book from Haruki-baby.
