My Blueberry Nights

Fans of Wong Kar Wai's Hong Kong films will find much to enjoy about "Nights," whose beautiful sights (courtesy of lenser Darius Khondji) look nearly as good on TV as they did in theaters. However, the DVD's limited extras won't help illuminate the filmmaker's famously mysterious shooting style.

Wong Kar Wai’s lush American film debut, “My Blueberry Nights,” featuring a group of easy-on-the-eyes stars (Jude Law, Natalie Portman, Rachel Weisz) arrives on DVD after a brief, and mostly unsuccessful, trip to the arthouse. Fans of Wong’s Hong Kong films, notably “In the Mood For Love” and “Chunking Express,” will find much to enjoy about “Nights,” whose beautiful sights (courtesy of lenser Darius Khondji) look nearly as good on TV as they did in theaters. However, the DVD’s limited extras won’t help illuminate the filmmaker’s famously mysterious shooting style.

A brief featurette acts as a disposable EPK, with Norah Jones discussing her film debut with little of the enthusiasm she displays in the film. A 20-minute Q&A with Wong should generate some interest from the auteur’s established fans, but doesn’t offer much beyond the usual production anecdotes. He does, however, discuss the myth that he works entirely without a script, saying he has a bare-bones screenplay but by the end of the shoot, “things change.”
