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.

A Complete Review of Wong Kar-wai's work (12 movies items)

" Cast : Tony Leung,Takeshi Kaneshiro What was it about? Two melancholy Hong Kong policemen fall in love: one with a mysterious female underworld figure, the other with a beautiful and ethereal server at a late-night restaurant he frequents. My two cents: 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"

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"
