["Fallen Angels"] is kind of exhausting and kind of exhilarating. It will appeal to the kinds of people you see in the Japanese animation section of the video store, with their sleeves cut off so you can see their tattoos. And to those who subscribe to more than three film magazines. And to members of garage bands. And to art students. It's not for your average moviegoers—unless of course, they want to see something new.Fallen Angels
(墮落天使) is a film by Wong Kar Wai
released in 1995, and something in-between a sequel and a companion film for Chungking Express
. Like the latter film, its plot (a jaded hitman
in a complicated relationship with his female manager agrees to One Last Job
) is incidental; the real point of the film is to depict Hong Kong
as Wong perceives it, a cramped urban nightscape of bright lights and frantic movement.
