Back to the future.

Given my recent raving obsession over Wong Kar Wai and 2046, I'm not sure how I missed this
excellent, sprawling piece that was published in the NY Times Magazine back in September. A sample:
Leung came in and the camera rolled: Wong's cinematographer, Christopher Doyle, a wiry 50-year-old with bright blue eyes and a shock of mad-scientist hair, simultaneously zoomed out and moved the camera for a kind of reverse corkscrew effect, from closer in to a stopping-point near the ceiling. Leung exhaled and Wong called ''Cut,'' critiquing the shot in a stream of Mandarin that concluded with a pronouncement in English: ''Not. Creative. Enough.''
