Part of our month-long celebration of legendary filmmaker Wong Kar Wai, thanks to Janus Films. $12 each, or $70 for the full series.

The whiplash, double-pronged CHUNGKING EXPRESS is one of the defining works of 90's cinema and the film that made Hong Kong filmmaker 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 stars and forever turned canned pineapple and the Mamas and the Papas’ “California Dreamin’” into tokens of romantic longing. NR, 102 min. In Cantonese with English subtitles.

“It's the cinematic equivalent of popcorn on a hot stove with jump-cut shots, freeze frames, stirringly beautiful images and boundless energy.” - Washington Post

"[Wong's] hypnotic images of love and loss finally wear down your resistance as seemingly discordant sights and sounds coalesce into a radiant, crazy quilt." - Rolling Stone
