    Second tier Wong Kar-Wai but still fun.

    ★★★★ Rewatched by Jon Johnson 06 Oct, 2014

    I’ve always found this a more enjoyable experience than Chungking Express (parts of which I find highly irritating) although stylistically and thematically it’s very similar and apparently grew out of a dropped segment of the previous film.

    Seeing it again, knowing it quite well and without the initial dazzle of WKW’s visual tricks, I found the storyline dealing with Takeshi Kaneshiro opening up business’ after hours much funnier than I remembered and, his relationship with his father, very moving. I…

    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…
