One of Wong's best films. The subtlety and craftsmanship remain as he transposes his work into the American idiom. A fantastic piece on love and the waves it sends through people.

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

In "My Blueberry Nights", this filmmaker transforms the blueberry pie "a la mode" into a sexual metaphor; read: a feminine body part in flux. Now this is an American pie ready for action. The filmmaker depicts female desire through dessert(rivulets of vanilla ice cream streaming down the crust and filling) with lyricism(read: slo-mo), because he wants to maintain an air of mystery about Elizabeth(Norah Jones). Does she come into Jeremy's cafe for friendship, or for love? The pie is a clue. The patina of cream lewdly smeared on Elizabeth's lips that suddenly disappears is another clue. But the filmmaker withholds the particulars about this vanishing smidgeon of vanilla towards the end of "My Blueberry Nights". The kiss belongs to Jeremy(Jude Law), a stand-in for the filmmaker, who records the moment on a surveillance tape(a metaphor for authorship). The kiss is personal. The kiss is performed under the filmic construct of auteurism. This kiss, is no ordinary kiss. This filmmaker, is no ordinary filmmaker. Expand
