    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…

    Pulpy, energetic, voyeuristic, yet so poignant. Never languid, and by far the most sensual of Wong's works. That final motorcycle scene is cinematic perfection -- lock it in a vault and let us be forever remembered that way.

    Often the first film you actually see of an adventerous director makes the deepest impression. This happened with me and Wong Kar-Wai. I saw Fallen Angels first, which completely blew me away, and after that its spiritual and stylistic predecessor Chungking Express just felt slightly disappointing. Having seen both movies a couple of times now the difference is quite obvious: the imagery of Fallen Angels is more exciting, the structurally the stories work better and personally the ‘California Dreaming’ part…

    Cleaning. Another dime. Blondie. The birthday video. Entrancing, all of it.

    Ah! Loved this movie. An eccentric Wong Ker Wai movie about urban loneliness and the existential crisis of living so close together but feeling so alone.

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    A hitman of few words, a vocation of destroying lives to earn money and prolong your own livelihood. A job that requires a certain apathy or distaste for your fellow man, whether you must bury your sadness or you simply don't care.

    The Killer, or his apparent human name: Wong Chi-Ming strolls through the night, from hit to hit and back home again. We are told he had some backstory, he was an innocent child known by his namesake at…

    It feels weird how a "sequel" trumps its predecessor. Fallen Angels, in all its obscure glory and form perfectly captures the loneliness and restlessness of young adults in an urban jungle. It moves in a pace that goes along with the characters' desire and the camera frames their faces full of longing with intensity.
