Chungking Express

Chungking Express ★★★★★

Seen this movie far too many times to count in its original version but the new restoration on Criterion's World of Wong Kar-wai box set definitely feels like an enhanced experience considering how much of this has been altered to resemble what Wong Kar-wai had said he envisioned of this film to be from the start.

But it only felt like I was seeing Chungking Express again for the first time, where it has only blown me away and every minute of this movie has been ingrained in my mind with such ease. For all I know, it's forever going to remain a favourite and I'm grateful that this movie exists in the way it does.
