A hot-shot to the heart, pop masterpiece Chungking Express tells the stories of two lovelorn cops (Takeshi Kaneshiro and Tony Leung) and the women who baffle them (Brigitte Lin and Faye Wong, who contributes a Cantopop cover of The Cranberries’ “Dreams”), its bifurcated structure suggesting the A- and B-sides of a 45. Wong’s international breakthrough introduced new audiences to his rich, sensorial brand of filmmaking, inviting one to disappear into, sink into, live inside, a voluptuary world bigger and brighter than our own—but just as heartbreaking.
