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. full review

Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times

I felt transported back to the 1960s films of Jean-Luc Godard. I was watching a film that was not afraid of its audience. full review

Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times

Wong brings tremendous vigor and audacity to the effort, asking us to question the most basic rules of storytelling and commercial filmmaking. full review

Edward Guthmann, San Francisco Chronicle

A densely packed suite of zany vignettes that have the autonomy of pop songs or stand-up comic riffs. full review
