Consensus: Though well filmed, My Blueberry Nights is a mixed bag of dedicated performers working with thin material.

Fans of Chinese director Wong Kar Wai's dreamy, romantic films will find My Blueberry Nights a luscious treat, although newcomers to his world of sensuous longing will no doubt wonder what all the fuss is about.

The too-neat screenplay doesn't allow for nearly as much improvisation as Wong's earlier Hong Kong reveries, but this impressionistic canvas is still profoundly sensuous and floridly vulnerable

The bad news about My Blueberry Nights is that it feels like an exaggeration to call it an actual movie.

My Blueberry Nights is a movie that is astonishing if only in the sense that it talks you out of liking it. Its cast is reasonably impressive but director Kar… More

Liked this romantic movie. The ending was pretty gross. I mean I don't mind kissing or anything like that but you'll see what I was talking about.
