Wong Kar Wai, Hong Kong’s most deliriously romantic director, floats an American version of his typical bittersweet love story, with mixed results. Singer Norah Jones stars as Elizabeth, a lonely waitress who believes in the “blueberry pie” theory of relationships, i.e., nobody wants it at the end of the night. Her widely scattered road trip begins in New York with Jude Law as a friendly restaurateur, then hits Memphis (David Strathairn and Rachel Weisz as ill-fated lovers) and Las Vegas (with Natalie Portman as a hard-luck poker player). We can see what Wong is trying to do, but he directs his actors like paper-doll cutouts. Lawrence Black helped Wong write the screenplay –- maybe he’s to blame (90 min.).
