Wong Kar-Wai: Chungking Express (Take I)

Wong Kar-Wai's 重慶森林 / Chungking Express (1994) tells two obliquely related tales of contemporary Hong Kong. Its style is the quintessence of hip and genuine cool.
Chungking Express stars Brigitte Lynn, Valerie Chow, Takeshi Teneshiro, Faye Wong, Tony Leung Chiu-Wai and the Chungking Mansions.    
Every scene in Chungking Express has colorful and memorable imagery.

Today's Rune: Journey.

Lana and I watched "the Land behind the pines," last night. Ever seen it? Is it one that you'd call an "art film?"

Hey, Charles, I haven't seen that one, but I saw the same director's last one, Blue Valentine, an intense indie or art style flick also with Ryan Gosling.
