Wong Kar-Wai does America, via Cannes

There's an article in today's New York Times about the Cannes Film Festival, currently underway on the Cote d'Azur. Apparently Wong Kar-Wai's new film My Blueberry Nights was the first film shown. I hadn't heard about it, but now I'm madly excited to see it. I love Wong's films--particularly Chungking Express and In the Mood for Love--and I'm curious to see what his first English-language film will be like. How will he evoke America, I wonder? So far one thing is clear though: Rachel Weisz in Wong Kar-Wai's unique color and light is a lovely vision indeed.
