There are se­quences in Hong Kong di­rec­tor Wong Kar-wai’s new film,

that are as gor­geous as any­thing you’ll see on a screen this year, or per­haps this decade.

— Liam Lacey, I’ve never been a big fan of Wong’s phan­tas­magoric pret­ti­ness, but at least here it pro­vides a wel­come cor­rec­tive to the usual mar­tial-arts may­hem.

— Peter Rainer, For those who aren’t ar­dent stu­dents of kung fu’s schools and styles, how­ever, the movie is, for most of its length, a life­less snore.

— Joe Mor­gen­stern, Wong ex­tracts mag­netic per­for­mances from his two stars, and Philippe Le Sourd de­liv­ers gor­geous cin­e­matog­ra­phy.

— V.A. Musetto,
