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

I already saw this movie but since it was such a long time ago, I was really eager to check it out again. By now, I have seen all the movies directed by Wong Kar-Wai and, 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. This movie is however the exception. Indeed, it was the very first movie I saw from this director... 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.

" 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 "

" Date: 5/1/2021 Viewed: Criterion Channel Re-Watch Note: Time to celebrate the first day of May by watching Chungking Express. To be honest, there's really nothing much to say other than it's a fantastic movie. I love the relaxing atmosphere in this film because the story feels very down to Earth. The cinematography from Christopher Doyle is fantastic because the film is stunning to look at with many dark colors. Wong Kar-wai did a wonderful job by telling two stories that deal with love, lo"

"16.2. rewatch Tykkäsin elokuvan ensimmäisestä, melankolisemmasta tarinasta enemmän kuin jälkimmäisestä, jossa on paljon humoristisempi lähestymistapa. Elokuvan henkilöiden tekosia seuratessa tulee lämmin olo, muttei tämä näin toisellakaan katselulla vielä mitään elämää suurempia tuntemuksia onnistunut herättämään."

" Love in the modern world. Can we keep pace with each-other, ourselves? Splashed with neon lights, sixties music, great dialogue and acting that displays the angst of living, loving and not being able to communicate with another. All against the brackish current of time, work, coincidence, the past, aspirations,being human and the realities that contradict your dreams or ideals... "
