I'm watching My Blueberry Nights which I thought I'd love because it's a Wong Kar Wai film, but I've got to the 50 minute mark and Norah Jones and Jude Law are driving me crazy. The scenes between them are so cliched and adolescent, I feel like I'm watching a pretentious film student's attempt at an arthouse film, and I hate that I don't like it because I really wanted to, but I'm not sure I can go any further. It just lacks a magic that his previous films have. If anyone's seen it, tell me if there's something I'm missing.
(And I'm sorry, but does Jude Law know what a Mancunian sounds like?)
