I'm watching WKW's "2046" on cable as I write this. It's beautifully shot and I guess that's what bothers me. Very lush photography, which, for some reason I am not fond of. Clean, soft images that look like they belong in a magazine annoy the hell out of me. It has a big-budget look to it. That's the only way I can describe it.

And I agree with Adam. I'd like a wide-shot to get a sense of the atmosphere, at least.

Give me "Chungking Express" anyday.

Some people like blondes others brunettes. I like them all, as long as they do it well.

In my opinion, no offence, unless your phones ringing offering more money then them, then you should be observational (it?s good to have your likes and dislikes that is what will forge your unique look as a shooter). To me, I hate unmotivated camera moves and lighting styles dictated by trends.

Mr Doyle, in my opinion has a great eye, I think he shoots conservatively but utilizes his surroundings. He also may have great collaboration with his designer and director.

By the way, I haven't seen any prior post on this topic. So I apologise if I bring up any old points.
