Poor Jude Law. He must be quaking in his boots. He's been talking about playing Hamlet in the West End for at least seven years and the moment has finally arrived. He opens as the Dane at Wyndham's Theatre on Friday – and rarely have the critics' knives been so far out of their scabbards.

Optimum Wong Kar Wai's American debut is like a parody of his earlier films: pretentious, vague, and smudged with hazy, neon-lit, slow-motion camera work. It stars Norah Jones as a New Yorker who breaks up with her boyfriend and hangs around Jude Law's café for blueberry pie and sympathy. She then takes a bus across the country, stopping off in Tennessee and Nevada, and crossing paths with hard-luck cases played by Rachel Weisz, David Strathairn and Natalie Portman. But nobody gets anything amounting to a storyline. The blueberry pie doesn't look very appetising either.
