    The World of Wong Kar-Wai Collector's Edition - The Criterion Collection

    With his lush and sensual visuals, pitch-perfect soundtracks, and soulful romanticism, WONG KAR WAI has established himself as one of the defining auteurs of contemporary cinema. Joined by such key collaborators as cinematographer CHRISTOPHER DOYLE (The Limits of Control); editor and production and costume designer WILLIAM CHANG SUK PING (Shadowboxer);and actors TONY LEUNG CHIU WAI (Lust, Caution) and MAGGIE CHEUNG MAN YUK (Irma Vep), Wong (or WKW, as he is often known) has written and directed films that have enraptured audiences and critics worldwide and inspired countless other filmmakers with their poetic moods and music, narrative and stylistic daring, and potent themes of alienation and memory. Whether they’retragically romantic, soaked in blood, or quirkily comedic, the seven films collected here are an invitation into the unique and wistful world of a deeply influential artist.
