10 January 2004 Some great movies I feel like recommending today, for some reason. Chungking Express is about loss. Wong Kar-Wai's movies are about characters more than they're about a plot, and that appeals to me. This movie has some great parts and annoying parts, but overall it works very well. Fallen Angels is another movie about loss by Wong Kar-Wai. Takeshi Kaneshiro's character in this is probably my favorite character in any movie I've seen. Waking the Dead is a great love story that I found to be moving. "Intense" is a good way to describe the relationship between the main characters. Infernal Affairs is really two movies, with more on the way. It may be a while before anyone can rent these in the US, but if you get a chance to see them definitely don't pass it up. The second may be a little better than the first, but seeing them out of order is not an option.
