Are You Ready for the Wong Kar Wai Challenge?
It’s a challenge that would test the mettle of even the most dedicated cinephile: In one hundred words or less, summarize the plot of Ashes of Time Redux.
One lucky winner will receive the new Ashes poster, courtesy of Sony Pictures Classics plus a copy of Criterion’s new Chungking Express DVD, courtesy of Criterion.
Submit your answer by posting in the comments below by midnight E.S.T., Wednesday December 3rd (just in time for the holiday season!). But be warned: Don’t get caught stealing already published blurbs. Wong Kar Wai himself will judge which entry is best (based on originality, concision, and style), and he’s already read all the stuff that’s out there. He’s looking for a truly upstanding scribe. Are you worthy?
