 “An exhilarating rush of a movie, with all manner of go-for-broke visual bravura that expresses perfectly the free spirits of Wong’s bold young people.” – Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Tiimes

Lost souls reach out for human connection amidst the glimmering night world of Hong Kong in Wong Kar Wai’s hallucinatory, neon-soaked nocturne. Originally conceived as a segment of Chungking Express only to spin off on its own woozy axis, this hyper-cool head rush plays like the dark, moody flip side to Wong’s breakout feature as it charts the subtly interlacing fates of a handful of urban loners, including a coolly detached hitman (Leon Lai) looking to go straight, his business partner (Michelle Reis) who secretly yearns for him, and a mute delinquent (Takeshi Kaneshiro) who wreaks mischief by night. Swinging between hardboiled noir and slapstick lunacy with giddy abandon, Fallen Angels is both a dizzying, dazzling city symphony and a poignant meditation on love, loss, and longing in a metropolis that never sleeps. (Dir. by Wong Kar Wai, 1995, Hong Kong, in Min Nan/Japanese/English/Cantonese/Mandarin with English subtitles, 99 mins., Rated R)
