El cine como frustración

Después de vista, no me explico la gran admiración de Quentin Tarantino por esta película. A no ser por un típico acribillamiento de callejón, es de reconocer, muy bien filmado. También debo confesar que el cine del realizador yanqui -excepción hecha de "Reservoir Dogs" (que tampoco es para tanto)- no me despierta grandes emociones.

Esta es la primera película más celebrada... read more

Simply amazing! I loved every minute of this film. The whole storyline seemed familar, though, at times. I feel that is because Hollywood has used this type of film structure in many films that I have seen.

I enjoyed the storyline, two lonely cops both connected by a Honk Kong snack bar- just brilliant. Although I have to say the second part of the film was a lot better than the firs... read more

A beautiful movie

Recently, I have watched a couple of movies directed by Wong Kar-wai (his most recent movie ‘Yi dai zong shi’ and ‘Dung che sai duk’, one of his oldest directing efforts) and, by now, I have seen almost all the movies directed by this guy. Eventually, even though I have a great admiration for his work, I came to the conclusion that I’m actually not really a huge fan. Still, this was the... read more

Two stories, two lovelorn cops, two objects of desire: one a big-time heroin dealer in deep trouble with her boss after the cargo disappears, the other a seriously flaky take-out waitress who inadvertently gets hold of the keys to her admirer's apartment, all shot in a breathless kaleidoscope of color and hand-held camera work to create a mesmerizing portrait of Hong Kong in the 1990s.

Nick's Top 100 Films (100 movies items)

""Chungking Express established Wong’s repu­tation as a major auteur, the most glamorous and enigmatic since Godard. It also marked a turning point in his work, a shift in direction that is actually signaled within the film, when the desultory underworld revenge narrative fades away and is replaced by a love story as simple as it is delirious." - Amy Taubin"

30 From 94: My Favorite Films From 1994 (30 movies items)

" Two separate stories about two different police officers, each trying to deal with their situations of heartbreak. Even though Chungking Express deals with matters of the heart, it's not really a romance movie. It's a film about dealing with the concept of love. The usual formula of love isn't followed in the premise, and instead, it is left almost ambiguous on what the people involved are feeling towards each other. These are couples that are definitely looking for love, but in the midst of "

" Notes: To be honest, it has been a while since I have seen this flick and I should definitely re-watch it at some point. Anyway, as usual with this director, it is a gorgeous movie with a very mesmerizing story. Tony Leung shows again he is one of the best actors at work right now. Wong Kar Wai is one of the most gifted directors nowadays and thanks to him, it is a real treat to watch this movie. There is not much of a story but it doesn't matter, the whole thing was just fascinating. By now,"

2016: Movies that I see (130 movies items)

"07/09/16 Directed by: Kar Wai Wong Generic 90's B.S. Every character is clearly written by the same person and has that "witty" 90's dialog, lots of pointless Dutch angels and of course it looks like mud since its an early 90's film. At least the second part is better than the entirely pointless first part. "
