Chungking Express


One of the most influential directors of the last few decades, Won Kar-Wai has a signature style, a bristling neon aesthetic, that can be seen in films, adverts and music videos the globe. Chungking Express (1994) gave his trademark directorial style an international profile. Brigitte Lin, iconic in dark glasses and blonde wig, looks for the courier who stole her cash and stash and bumps into "Cop 233" who's just self-consiously decided to fall for the next woman he meets. Dazzling in its cool exuberance and colour-saturated gloss, this neon paean to lost love is Wong's most exquisitely hypnotic work to date.
