Food Porn for the Lovelorn

After a disappointing theatrical release, Wong Kar Wai’s My Blueberry Nights deserves second look on DVD. It’s sugary, seductive atmosphere of cozy cafes and boozy bars overcomes a script that is about as solid as a scoop of ice cream over hot blueberry pie.  This is style over substance, to be sure, but when that style is a sweet languor of Otis Redding, Cat Power, and baked dessert, sign me up.  You can Netflix it today.

Alexa Frangos bakes fruit pies when she isn’t collaging and blogging over at Pop Elegantiarum.
