emotional content above form. viscera above meditative. clarity above interpretative.

wow...in the mood for love at #1. still haven't seen it yet...lots of hype though. it's going to be pretty tough to beat yiyi. i personally like the earlier wong kar-wai films even if the art design/cinematography gets better with the later films...there's something i dig in days of being wild that can't be describe in words.
hummmm...did you know henri cartier bresson was jean renoir's assistence for a while. you learn something everyday.

Yes, Cartier-Bresson was. My favorite Jacques Becker and Luchino Visconti also did assistant director works for him. I find odd that Cartier-Bresson never did a DP work though.

not really all that odd. we must remember that Henri Cartier-Bresson only took up photography to make instant art. he gave up photography and returned to painting, regardless of how esteemed he is as a photographer, to himself he was and always will be a painter. :)
