  1. Captures the overwhelming and uncontrollable emotional assault of loving and living through captured moments and sensuous images.

    Despite its flaws, the film has the same dreamy, romantic melancholy that distinguishes Wong's best films.

    Wong's visions of a New York café, a Memphis bar, and a Vegas casino--not to mention the swaths of beautiful country in the Southwest--have that enveloping quality that make his films so persistently seductive. The natives should feel flattered.

    It's a stylish and sweet film with moments of affecting brilliance that counterbalance its flaws.
  5. Norah Jones, making her big-screen debut as a wistful wanderer, is a beautiful blank, and the fragments barely add up to a movie.

    All this is frustrating, as the picture contains a few grace notes that remind one what an acute filmmaker Wong can be.

    Music and nostalgia are what fuel all this filmmaker's movies, though, even a half-baked translation like this one.

    An inspiring exercise of a road-movie by one of the most talented of the directors alive.
