    Fallen Angels is seen as a sequel or spiritual descendant of WKW's most popular film, Chungking Express (1994). Released a year after that, Fallen Angels was originally conceived as the third story for that film. Just like 'Chungking', this film has two different stories. But unlike it, they are somewhat interconnected because of the geography and themes, the characters from each of these stories run into each other. The first story features Leon Lai as a hit man named Wong…

    This film sticks to you like glue, but you have no intention of shaking it off. It immerses you, it climbs on your taste buds and dances ‘till sunrise. It makes your veins burst through your skin and your lungs bellow out of your chest. You experience every colour splattered into each frame until your body is ravished. Fallen Angels looks amazing, Fallen Angels feels amazing. There’s something about the world at night that’s alluring, mystical, and just different. The…

    "The night's full of weirdos."

    Wong Kar Wai's weirdos are night owls desperate for love, companionship, money, work. His direction, shots, framing and soundtrack is unique; charming and stylish to the max.

    Hard not fall in love with this one.

    The cinematography, the editing, the love that doesn't last, the love that comes out of nowhere... I fucking love this movie.

    Wong Kar-Wai just may be my favorite director on the planet.

    I've always been intrigued by my dreams, sometimes even more so than my own life. There's something fascinating about the mind generating people that you've never met before, or had never bothered to get to know, creating personalities that would seem so vivid that I would wake up wondering if there isn't someone exactly like that in reality. Alas, those imaginary figures are never to be met again as I go from one dream to the next. I have seen…

    This is my favourite film. It's everything I want in a film. I love the music, the colours and cinematography, the feeling of it all. Night and neon and alienation like in so many other films, but in this one it somehow feels so sincere. I never get tired of watching this. & the end scene is perfect.

    Realizations I have reached from watching Fallen Angels:

    1. Watching it really makes me crave noodles.
    2. Watching it actually has the power to drive me to make noodles.
    3. I'm really bad at making noodles since I use too much pepper and the noodles turn out too soft.
    4. I don't really mind since they're my noodles, goddamn it.
    5. That Asian chick who masturbates on the hitman's bed is really, really, ridiculously good-looking.
    6. I should not watch…

    #45 in my 99 90's Movies month.

    Even though it's piloted by narration, there is nothing phony here. (Also: ♥ Takeshi Kaneshiro!)

    Fallen Angels is focused on the realism of relationships. Considered the spiritual sequel to Chungking Express, FA is something darker but of course, still fantastic. There's a sort of realism with some fantastical elements in Wong Kar-Wai's film, and that's his signature mark. I love Fallen Angels and I consider it to be some of Kar-Wai's best work. It's nothing short of real. Towards the end, Wong perfectly captures the motif of smoke dispersing as Michelle is holding tightly to…
