And in fact, in relation to the above post, the entire film is online currently via YouTube. Just watch the beginning, if nothing else. As I said, it is one of the most beautiful and profound films you will ever see, with themes that are universal. It will move and affect you in several ways. Directed by Edward Yang, one of two directors pretty much responsible for the Taiwan New Wave which began in the '80s. I have it on Blu-ray, and that would be the preferred way to watch it.

It is a masterpiece. It is Yi Yi: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=COXySK50ZR4

The 5.6.7.8's (a real band) perform in the House of Leaves...

As quoted above, about ten posts back I mentioned the scene with the 5.6.7.8's. Here's a video where Quentin Tarantino explains how and why he put them in the film: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ffsz8TRbKj8

Holy crap!

How could I have neglected to include this scene? He looks at the bone, ponders it. The music begins to play. He picks it up...

This is art, right here...

In subtle slow motion, we see the sway of her hips in her floral print cheongsam dress, the delicate swing of her purse, the dangling cigarette in her companion's hand, the quiet nighttime street of Hong Kong, all the while, Nat King Cole sings Aquellos Ojos Verdes. If you were to see this on Blu-ray, with Dolby 5.1 Surround, in an excellent home theater, you would be in heaven.

Note: sometimes YouTube screws up the entry point. We're looking for time marker 0:28:51.

Okay, be sure to look at the one in my post above. The context, of course, is the director, as the clip below is a different movie, but the same director.

Read this before watching the clip:

More pure cinematic art can be seen here. You want to watch from 1:33:00 to 1:37:38. That's about 4:38 seconds. Absolutely beautiful on so many levels.

It's Christmas Eve, probably the year 1967, in Hong Kong. Mr. Chow loves this woman, but she loves another.

As far as the soundtrack goes, first we hear the beautiful restaurant music, then Adiago by Secret Garden, and then finally the opera music as we recall from the story within the story the train ride in the future with the relativistic effect and then we see a Ken Burns style pan of a still photograph of Mr. Chow on the hotel rooftop. And then finally, her exit, as she, in a green checked dress turns around and looks directly into the camera.

Watch the whole thing, and try and follow the dialog and narration. As I said, pure and beautiful cinematic art. Turn the volume up and enjoy!

Again, note
: Youtube might not get to the exact spot. Make sure you start at 1:33:00.

When reading the title I instantely thought of dumber and dumber starring Jim Carrey. When they pick up the guy in their car and Jim Carrey (Llyod) says "Do you know what the most annoying noise is?" (something along those lines) and then does a funny ass impression.

All in subtle slow motion...

Mrs. Chan, dressed in one of her cheongsams, walks into the dining area filled with her neighbors. Then, with a seductive sway of her hips, Mrs. Chow, dressed in a more western style dress, joins them.

Yumeji's Theme is playing.

Mr. Chow then excuses himself. He walks out, and then we pan back to see Mrs. Chan comforting her husband.

Such glorious cinematography.

Warning: YouTube sometimes messes up the entry point of videos marked at a certain point. Be sure to set the video's time marker to 4:11.

Twenty-four Eyes, the final ten minutes or so. A very beautiful and moving end.

Did you watch my favorite movie moments? Because sometimes a little back and forth dialog makes a difference if you don't wish your own favorite movie moment to rot and fester while other pass it by.

So?

I have posted about twenty other clips, most or none from Hulu.

I love the scene from Kurosawa's Red Beard where the mistreated girl is nursing the young doctor back to health. The mood, the lighting, the atmosphere, the interplay between her and the doctor, all of it - just so wonderful.

Growing up in the cold war, this movie scared the begeezers out of me for years after.
