Hong Kong | 1995 | Wong Kar-wai An intoxicating mixture of Edward Hopper and Hong Kong action thriller, this film takes a razzle-dazzle postmodernist plunge through a neon-lit, honky-tonk HK nighttown in which a professional hitman and a mute ex-con—in parallel stories—look for love amid all the sensation. Has the wit, energy, and freewheeling, anything-goes spirit of early Godard.
