FALLEN ANGELS (Wong Kar Wai, 1995 / 98 mins / 14A / English subtitles) In this bifurcated crime narrative, a disillusioned hitman attempts to escape from his violent lifestyle against the wishes of his partner, who is infatuated with him, and an eccentric mute repeatedly encounters, then subsequently falls for a depressed woman looking for the prostitute who supposedly stole her ex-boyfriend's affections.
CHUNGKING EXPRESS (Wong Kar Wai, 1996 / 103 mins / PG / Cantonese with English subtitles) Every day, Cop 223 buys a can of pineapple with an expiration date of May 1, symbolizing the day he’ll get over his lost love. He’s also got his eye on a mysterious woman in a blond wig, oblivious of the fact she’s a drug dealer. Cop 663 is distraught with heartbreak over a breakup. But when his ex drops a spare set of his keys at a local cafe, a waitress lets herself into his apartment and spruces up his life.
