Directed by Wong Kar-wai
An incredibly intoxicating, multi-faceted love story, Fallen
Angels succeeds on levels both technical and emotional. Wong Chi-Ming
(Leon Lai) is the archetypal hired killer, content to have everything
arranged around him so that all he has to do is pull the trigger.
Powerful editing, combined with Chris Doyle's cinematography, which
manipulates lenses and visual tones with hypnotic ease, and superb use of
montage, Fallen Angels throbs with vitality. It's an electrifying
experience which needs to be seen several times for full comprehension,
and even then it won't be appreciated by all. Nevertheless, if you feel
adventurous, catch Fallen Angels while you can. 90 minutes.
