Reactions to Wong Kar Wai's "My Blueberry Nights"
Reactions came straight from the heart Thursday afternoon after the second showing of Wong Kar Wai's film, "My Blueberry Nights." Viewers were not only willing but even anxious to talk about their reactions after watching the 151 minute film, the third film of Wong's to premiere at the Cannes Film Festival .

" It's Wong Kar Wai and his stuff is always beautiful. Everything is beautiful." He paused, reflecting, and said, "It's a little bit empty, but it's beautiful... That's it"
"Me, I loved it," said another viewer before continuing to how it affected her. "I have a lot of loves too. I identify a lot with the character 'Liz' (a main character in the film)." The viewer happened to be from Memphis, TN, a city where the film takes place. "It was beautiful for me to see my city represented. And on top of that, the music, the slowness of it... the whole movie really gave me a sense of place. He [Wong] always really evokes that, I really love that."
One film student, however, had a more critical perspective. "It was good, but actually I thought Norah Jones sucked. And the editing was choppy," he said. "The cinematography was interesting though."
