    When one thinks about the ascendance of Wong Kar-wai to the Olympus of international auteurism, a few aesthetic and narrative standbys come to mind: the groundbreaking utilization of the step-printing technique in order to capture the mazelike cartography of Hong Kong and its multilayered neighborhoods; the innovative deployment of various, multi-language soundscapes; affected voiceovers that dwell on the recurrent theme of unrequited love; the ephemerality of desire and the unbound connection between characters and their surrounding objects.
