    Pretty amazing, but I feel that one would have to have seen Chungking Express first in order to "get" the film (whatever that means).
    Camerawork is very beautiful, it has the "Wong Kar-wai feel" that I really love- one of the opening scenes (at an underground train station, I think?) was a favourite, and the acting is top-class, with Kaneshiro Takeshi's comedy timing just right.

    Fallen Angels plays like Chungking Express’s naughty but endlessly talented and infinitely wise younger brother. And it is gorgeous, full of angst, agitation, and a group of lost youths completely, but not overtly revealed to be, consumed by these emotions and consequently doing all they can to fight boredom and loneliness. Thus it’s a tempest of emotions that we get, ranging from the hysterical to the painfully silent, from moments dripping with sensuality to an affectingly intimate look at a…

    I love the feeling of this film, so much. The eternal, perpetual night where the only light comes via neon. The strange people you randomly meet, at a deserted McDonalds or a noodle shop. I love the night in this film so much, that when the film finally lets us see daylight for 10 or so seconds at the very end, I'm sort of depressed. I don't want the night to end.

    The things these people do are so lovely…

    Warning: this is lengthy.

    Some online movie magazine is doing a review of all of Wong's movies. So far everything has four stars except this and As Tears Go By. They gave that movie three stars. They gave this movie two and a half stars.

    People often ask me what my favorite film is and it’s impossible to answer. I might be able to narrow it down to a favorite director (living and dead) or a top ten, but favorite…

    One of my favorite movies. To expand slightly on Brian's review, Fallen Angels is the dark companion to Chungking Express. This movie is about damaged night dwellers. These characters ache so viscerally. No one makes movies about loneliness as consistently compelling as Wong Kar-wai. This movie is famously the discarded story of Chungking Express, but like Chungking, this is two stories that occasionally pass each other. It uses many of the same settings and themes as Chunking, but this is…

    Are you feeling a little down lately? A little lovelorn and a little lost? Is there a dull pain in the pit of your chest that just won't go away? If you have watched a Wong Kar-Wai movie recently, you may be experiencing a phenomenon known as Wong Withdrawal. Other such symptoms of Wong Withdrawal include but are not limited to:

    1. An increased exposure to and fascination with a wide variety of groovy music
    2. An intensified attraction to…

    *Spoilers regarding both Fallen Angels & Chungking Express*

    This is also just a stream of thoughts with no particular organization

    Wong Kar-Wai, you sneaky bastard.

    I'll start by saying that this is my second time watching Fallen Angels. Both in close proximity to watching Chungking Express. Of course the two films were suggested to at one point be considered to co-exist within the same film, but then instead got split up into two. Upon hearing this (before my first watch) I…
