Like Wong's film stock, whose meager latitude won't let the eye deep into the image, Wong's characters, all 20-something slackers and grotesques, have the same lack of depth.

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

Fallen Angels lunges and chases after its rapidly receding subjects, looking to capture and preserve a trace of their presence before the sun rises and the shadows fade.

The film is Wong's most visually striking, with Wong and Doyle constantly inventing intoxicating new angles for every shot.

There's a lot more to Wong Kar-Wai than tremendous cinematic skill and distinctive style. He's got something to say about the modern condition.

A brilliantly innovative filmmaker who gets his feelings across through the cheeky and sometimes surreal visuals and his cool style of filmmaking.

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

Photographed by expat Australian Christopher Doyle, Fallen Angels is cinematic exuberance in the hands of a confident filmmaker who builds a montage, and serves you a smorgasbord of images and characters that inhabit a world you are invited to experience.

It has a life of its own, thanks to Wong's over-the-top blend of John Woo-like violence and almost surreal humor.

Wong has used practically every cinematic element available to him to create a mood of love gone off the track, drawn-out wishes, time passing emptily, and disconnection.

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

Aptly demonstrates [Wong's] unique, undecipherable charm.
February 14, 2001
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.
