    Tarantino & Fritz Lang meet southeast Asia. Gritty, noirly lit, with expressionist tilt, an optimistic grimness makes this unique, given its geography. Not sure it stands the test of time, but certainly the "independent" movement.

    Won Kar Wai's worse film. Yet his singular, and distinctive, style helps it avoid being described as complete shit.

    Le vite di un killer, della sua agente e di un ragazzo muto persi nel turbinio di una deriva esistenziale a cui il regista contribuisce con una atmosfera opprimente e soffocante (grandangoli a profusione) e con una fotografia buia e sporca. La vicenda del ragazzo muto è poetica, quasi metafisica, piena di umorismo e di situazioni toccanti (i video del padre). La storia del killer gronda romanticismo ed è valorizzata dalla presenza di Michelle Reis, ma è più convenzionale. Belli i dialoghi.

    "Fallen Angels (1995)" was a mysterious and slightly whimsical work of art; its silky hand-held cinematography and brilliant jade/amber hue {with the periodic usage of 'black-&-white'} echoed Krzysztof Kieślowski's "The Double Life of Veronique (1991)", along with the stylish appearance of Darren Aronofsky's "Requiem for a Dream (2000)". The film's cast was pure gold; their naturalistic performances were adorned by spectacular 'international' music, solace locations, and terrific emotional editing.

    I wasn’t expecting that.

    I went from being unsure about Wong Kar-wai’s darker cousin of my much loved Chungking Express on my first watch of it, to falling in love with it on the second. It wasn't surprising, as the experience was similar to my first and second encounters with Chungking; its charms only embracing me on that re-watch.

    The plan was to re-watch Chunking, as it’s been close to three years since the last time I was 0.01cm from…

    Fallen Angels is the spiritual sequel to Chungking Express, and really, it is really that film's funhouse mirror. Where Chungking Express is a loving mixtape to longing protagonist cops, the aptly titled Fallen Angels is about the flip side. Here, longing protagonist crooks are featured in Wong Kar Wai's melancholic mixtape. Where there was optimism there, you feel as if the protagonists who survive this film aren't meant to meet Faye Wong in California.

    This film isn't depressing, though, even…

    I liked this film. It's not Wong Kar-wai's best that's for sure but it is still as stylish as most of his work. I particularly loved The camerawork and the colorful characters but it wasn't enough to lift the uninteresting arcs these characters had. I know this was one of Wong's early efforts so I understand why it lacked the spark that Chungking had. 

    All in all I had fun but I wish there was more that it could offer.
