The whiplash, double-pronged CHUNGKING EXPRESS is one of the defining works of 1990s cinema and the film that made Wong Kar Wai an instant icon. Two heartsick Hong Kong cops, both jilted by ex-lovers, cross paths at the Midnight Express take-out restaurant stand, where the ethereal pixie waitress Faye works.

Anything goes in Wong’s gloriously shot and utterly unexpected charmer, which cemented the sex appeal of its gorgeous stars and forever turned canned pineapple and the Mamas and the Papas’ CALIFORNIA DREAMIN’ into tokens of romantic longing.

Wong Kar Wai, Hong Kong, 102 min. Cantonese, English, Japanese, Hindi, Mandarin, Punjabi & Urdu spoken, Dutch subtitles.
