Moody Aesthetics: In The Mood For Love: Wong Kar Wai

Last night I re-watched In The Mood For Love by director Wong Kar Wai.

I love this film. It is so atmospheric and stylish. It has a sensitive, subtle and slow moving plot. The music is haunting and the cinematography utterly beautiful.

The setting is 1960s Hong Kong. The costumes and sets are stunning.  Dark intense colours, lighting and music along with a clever use of  slow motion, rain and cigarette smoke create a charged atmosphere. The viewer feels the heaviness and suppression of the characters lives.

Searching the internet I found out that there are several restaurant that have been designed with this film as an inspiration. I can see why! The sensual saturated colours, moody lighting and retro 1960’s aesthetic with an exotic oriental twist, certainly make for an atmospheric and classy environment.

Inspiration: The Satorialist

I have followed The Satorialist (Scott Schuman) for years. I love his eye,  the romantic slightly old-fashioned way that he sees people and the way that this comes across in his photographs. I came across this interview today and found it really inspiring. It made me feel so excited to be living and working in New York!
