One of the best from the BMW Series
1 March 2002 | by (California) – See all my reviews

This short with the possible exception of Inarritu's Powder Keg is the best from the BMW series. This one is a typical film you might expect from Wong Kar Wai (very dark and film noirish). It should not be missed by any of his fans.
