Wong Kar Wai, 2004, 35mm, 128 min. In Cantonese, Japanese, Mandarin with English subtitles. 

Five years on from the events of IN THE MOOD FOR LOVE, find lovesick pulp writer Chow Mo-Wan (Tony Leung Chiu-wai) transformed into a pencil-mustached lothario no longer in the mood for love, but craving its decimation. Moving from the bedsheets of hotel room 2046 to the sheets of paper on which he writes a serial of romance and woe; a futuristic tale set aboard a 2046-bound train attended by androids all bearing resemblance to past paramours, like memories — once loved, now discarded. A delirium of longing and self-destruction; of lipstick-smears; of clicking high heels; Wong Kar Wai, along with frequent collaborator and cinematographer Christopher Doyle, holds a mirror to an aromantic future. Dare to look into its reflection. Co-starring Faye Wong, Zhang Ziyi, and Carina Lau with appearances by Gong Li and Maggie Cheung.
