Along with the news for his upcoming feature film, which will begin filming this year, Chinses director Wong Kar-wai has also talked about the upcoming 20th anniversary of his masterpiece “In the Mood For Love”.
According to a recent article, the director’s own studio, Jet Tone Films, will work on 4K restorations for all of his films including such titles as “As Tears Go By”, “Chungking Express” and “2046“. Since many of these titles have been either out of print or are very hard to come by for cinephiles all around the world, this is indeed great news.
Just like author Jordan Raup writes in his article, we also hope for a Criterion boxset with including the director’s works, similar to their Ingmar Bergman set and others. We will look out for further announcements and news on these restorations and Wong Kar-wai’s new feature.
