Fallen Angels


Dir. Wong Kar-wai. 1995, 96 mins. 35mm. With Leon Lai, Michelle Reis, Tony Leung Chiu-Wai. This noirish prelude to Chungking Express was derived from the third act of its screenplay, and filmed in the same claustrophobic spaces of Tsim Sha Tsui. Fallen Angels is a thrilling ride into the nocturnal doomed love lives of a few solipsistic beautiful outlaws: a nihilistic killer-for-hire, his agent, femme fatale Blondie, and—in a parallel universe—delinquent Ho Chi Moo and little Charlie. Hyperstylized in delectable wide-angle shots in both high-contrast black-and-white and searing colors, Fallen Angels is one of Wong’s most stunning films.
