My Blueberry Nights: A Wong Kar-Wai let down

Saw Wong Kar-Wai's new film My Blueberry Nights at a film festival. Was extremely disappointed. The only consolation for Wong Kar-Wai fans is that he has not lost his visual sense. Other than that, the director relies solely on some pretty faces and overdose of sentimentalism. Is it mandatory that all good directors have to do mediocre stuff once they are done with their best?

I had loved In the mood for love. Yet to see his other films (2046, Chunking Express..)
