the first story is masterclass - the visuals, the imagery, the sad soulful jazz in the bars - everything in its right place the second story was a bit weird in terms of characterization and plot but i liked it anyway (although a lot less than the first). also, california dreamin' has been my eternal jam and it was so good to see it as an overall motif in the second story. i wish more romance movies had half the atmosphere this and in the mood for love have read more

chungking express has two different stories, two different sets of main casts and two cinematographers, even the title itself is an amalgamation of two location, chungking mansions and the midnight express snack bar. the original chinese title of this movie (重庆森林) which translates to chungking forest, which itself is another amalgamation of one location (chungking mansions) and one idiomatic term (concrete jungle). this direct translation befits the theme of this movie more, the examination of loneliness and the desire for love in the overcrowded city of hong kong. chungking mansions was... read more

short review: wong kar-wai builds up a beautifully drowsy atmosphere and tells a captivating story about relationships with his directing and writing. great use of metaphors and music. terrific acting. the film is split into two stories, and neither of them live up to their full potential. the first one is insanely interesting but underdeveloped, and the second one has a more muddled story that can sag at times, feeling much longer than it actually is. one thing the second story has over the first is its satisfying conclusion. unfortunately aged worse upon rewatch. read more

about five years after i've seen his fallen angels, i am glad to have seen chungking express finally. of course, there's the wong kar-wai's very own auteur, unique style, experimental aesthetic, and great soundtrack that really draws the viewer in appreciation of his works. but, in addition to that, regardless of wong's characters personified by their dreamy and romanticized stupidity or cluelessness; rather than finding them annoying, it was so easy to be pulled in the ethereal and quirky comedy of wong. indeed, i was laughing almost in the entirety of the film. wong really proved that read more

Saw scenes in a music video and noticed that the female lead is gorgeous.
