Most Poetic Films of the 21st Century

In the Mood for Love A film filled with slow-motion walking, glances and contemplation by the lead actors, a haunting score, whisperings, smoke lingering under a neon light, painterly composition, and the list goes on and on. Wong Kar-wai's film with Tony Leung and Maggie Cheung might be the quintessential film on yearning for romance, fragility, and daunting companionship.The lucid score heightens how these characters are drowning in misery and feel abandoned, but misery loves company, thus resulting in a unique compatibility.
Take the motif of them walking by one another and somehow now exchanging a direct glance: the tempo slows down pours in, their bodies almost brush against one another, and it's as almost like a poem was transcribed on the silver screen.
As the film continues and concludes, we know we are experiencing a film that will linger in the mind foreve.
