A good movie

Not so long ago, I saw Wong Kar-wai’s last directing effort, ‘Yi dai zong shi’, but even though it was rather promising, I thought it was ultimately rather disappointing. Still, the guy remains a very interesting director so I decided to check one of his older movies as well. Apparently, even though it is a rather short feature, Wong Kar-wai struggled so much while making this movie that, du... read more

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

" Cast : Maggie Cheung, Tony Leung, Leslie Cheung What was it about? A broken-hearted hit man moves to the desert where he finds skilled swordsmen to carry out his contract killings. My two cents: Even though it is a rather short feature, Wong Kar-wai struggled so much while making this movie that, during the post-production, he actually stopped working on it and made in the mean time ‘Chung hing sam lam’.

Anyway, even though I admired this movie just like most of the other work delivered by this director, I had a really hard time to c” read more
