Midnight Davis 'In The Mood For Love' by Richard Hunter
The ethereal soundscape of Midnight Davis's In The Mood For Love gets a hypnotic, and richly-photographed treatment by Richard Hunter - Tarantino meets David Lynch as following a bravura 90-second opening tracking shot, a girl dances in front of a man in a rubber mask, tied to a chair.
