Critic Reviews for Wheel of Fortune and Fantasy
When stitched together, with the themes of coincidence and kindness being the only real connective tissue, the narratives spin themselves into something just shy of cinematic profundity.
No movies this year took more pleasure in the architecture and engineering of narrative.
This is a film you surrender to, appreciating every move as it reminds you of past loves and regrets.
Hamaguchi has a beautiful outlook on mistakes and the complex emotions that make up humanity, and his tenderness toward each character he brings to life makes him one of the best storytellers working today.
A poignant, sometimes piercing triptych of tales, each one predicated on chance encounters and romantic possibilities, it finds Hamaguchi in playful, beguiling and quietly affecting form.
