My Blueberry Nights Poster Exclusive
Grab a slice of this...

24 January 2008  |  Written by Glen Ferris

Mmmm.... Pie. Is just us or does the very mention of pastry-encased blueberry goodness get the tastebuds going? Just us? Okay then, down to business.

We've been given a lovely new poster for Wong Kar Wai's soon-to-be-released tale of self-discovery, the search for true love and the benefits of a lovely slice of pie - and a quick perusal of the talent on offer determines it's well worth a look.


Jude Law, Rachel Weisz, Natalie Portman and singer Norah Jones (making her screen debut) bolster this none-more indie effort which marks the In The Mood For Love director's English-language debut. Watch this space for our take on the film...

Changed from Cannes
...I remember reading pretty muted reviews after its Cannes screening, so glad to hear it's been tightened up a bit. Assuming, of course, the new editing is an improvement! And yay to Strathairn appearing on the poster! More

FYI, to the person doing the review for Empire. This is a different version from the one that premiered at Cannes last year. After a lot of negative reviews, mostly with regards to the 'slow' pacing, director Wong Kar-wai personally cut 15 minutes from the film, including some voiceover narration. More

RE: Jude Law? Natalie Portman? Norah Jones?
What's wrong with Portman (who is smokin btw)? I'm not a big fan of Law granted but surely reserve judgement on Norah Jones until you have a point of reference  More

I've seen it and think it's weaker than most of WKW's previous work though not his worst. I rate it 7 out of 10. Just. More
