Fallen Angels

A disillusioned Hong Kong killer (Leon Lai Ming) embarks on what he hopes to be his last hit -- all the while realizing that to truly get out of the game, he must overcome his romantic obsession with his rarely seen partner (Michelle Reis). In a seemingly unrelated subplot, a mute (Takeshi Kaneshiro) tries to get the world's attention in his own unconventional way. Kar Wai Wong wrote and directed this winner of multiple Hong Kong Film Awards.

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 Times  full review
 
I felt transported back to the 1960s films of Jean-Luc Godard. I was watching a film that was not afraid of its audience.
Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times  full review
 
Wong brings tremendous vigor and audacity to the effort, asking us to question the most basic rules of storytelling and commercial filmmaking.
Edward Guthmann, San Francisco Chronicle  full review
 
A densely packed suite of zany vignettes that have the autonomy of pop songs or stand-up comic riffs.
Stephen Holden, New York Times  full review
