My Blueberry Nights
(Hong Kong/France/China, 2007, 95 minutes)
A heartbroken New Yorker strikes a friendship with a restaurant manager and decides to take a cross-country trip to find her way back into life. Luxuriantly glossy, atmospheric melodrama of contemporary romance that transfers its director's usual visual and thematic fetishes to modern-day America without bringing anything new to the table; still, it's a dream to look at.
