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.
