  1. 2046: fuck yeah! Gosto um muito do Chungking Express, do In the Mood for Love. Mas 2046 topa todos esses, geralmente apontados como os melhores (essas escolhas denotam uma preferência pelo romantismo purinho né?).


    1. Gosto até do filme americano dele, mas parece que a maioria tem certa ressalva quanto àquele, mas 2046 é tão bem escrito (e filmado!) que não há pra ninguém.
