    Wong Kar-Wai makes me feel things, and I don't like it.

    I love the humour and the silliness which is mixed with blood splattered violence, in Wong Kar Wai's films. No matter how desperate people are, they can always have a laugh. The connectedness that you feel in all his films is that which makes you genuinely know that they are all happening in the same world. Even in two different movies, you feel like all the stories could collide, such as the subtly mentioned canned pineapples in Fallen Angels, which…

    "Most people fall in love for the first time as teenagers. I guess I'm a late bloomer."

    While I wouldn't call this a disappointing film per se, I would call Fallen Angels the second instance I've been disappointed with director/writer Wong Kar-Wai. I continue to try and fall in love with his work but I find myself drawn back by what I feel are missteps in his visual style, writing and particularly his storytelling.

    This film shares next to all…

    After initially being not too impressed by the first Wong Kar-Wai film I watched, Chungking Express, I was a little hesitant to watch another one of his films at the time. Fallen Angels though was always one that caught my interest, mainly because the poster just looked like it radiated style and had a really cool atmosphere to it. Many months later, and after just watching it, I have to say I was blown away by how much I enjoyed…

    On rainy Asian afternoons, there isn't much better for my mental state than sitting down and watching a Wong Kar-wai film that I haven't seen before. So that's how I found myself watching Fallen Angels yesterday.

    Everyone in this film is pretending to have the life they want, phoning ex-boyfriends, following a crush's movements to feel like they're with them, describing photos of strangers as family photos, or even breaking into businesses at night to pretend to work there. In…

    A very ambitious film about these, in many ways, different characters and how they each handle relationships, mainly the endings. It also does more than this, but that is the best I can really describe it. I really enjoyed its pacing and found its camera angles, which are mostly oblique, to be used in interesting ways. This film really taps into daily routines and what forces drive us to be the way we are. This is a very vague understanding of it, but I don't necessarily believe one has to understand the film. It is more important to understand these characters, who are all great.

    I've started to notice that Wong's movies have that kind of after hour feel to them that I really love it movies. There's just something about the surreal vibrancy of nighttime that I find so mesmerising, filled with strange characters and the neon lit-glaze of Hong Kong, Fallen Angels is one of those movies.

    Wong Kar-Wai may just have my personal favourite film style, it feels so melancholic and sleek, the neon signs of after hours Hong Kong are vividly…

    Not the biggest fan of this one, but it's still worth a watch.

    Wong Kar Wai sure loves Midnight Express. And nail polishes in pastel colors. However, Takeshi missed his Expired Pineapple-otaku role.

    Given that this was originally supposed to be a part of Chungking Express, it is no surprise that Fallen Angels channels some of what made Chungking such a cinematic wonder. It is also, however, a bit like making lightning strike in the same place twice. If there's a filmmaker that could do it, it would be Wong Kar-Wai--unfortunately, it doesn't quite happen here. A lot of Wong's films have a near-mythic quality that he seems to conjure up from…
