    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…

    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.

    Only a director who never takes off his sunglasses could make a movie this cool.

    Wow. I finally watched this. It's basically my personal tastes distilled into one movie. That's all I can say for now.
