#838: In the Mood for Love at 20 / Nine Days / Top 5 Romantic Gestures (Revisited)

Wong Kar Wai’s IN THE MOOD FOR LOVE had no shortage of acclaim on its 2000 release (2001 in the U.S.), but its stature has only grown in the past two decades and is now considered by many to be one of the great achievements of the 21st century. Adam and Josh offer no arguments to the contrary in their 20th-anniversary revisit of the film, part of their World of Wong Kar Wai Marathon. And not that you asked for it, but the review also prompts them to debate which is sexier: silence or food. Plus, a revisit of the Top 5 Romantic Gestures from 2013, and Josh nominates the new existential drama NINE DAYS for the Filmspotting Golden Brick Award. 0:00 - Billboard 1:05 - Wong Kar Wai #6: “In The Mood For Love” Vitamin String Quartet, “In Your Eyes” 41:43 - Brickspotting: “Nine Days” 46:37 - Next Week / Notes 53:25 - Massacre Theatre 1:01:51 - Revisited: Top 5 Romantic Gestures (2013) 1:12:27 - Outro Learn more about your ad choices.
