Fantastic movie that brings you so deeply into the intimate feelings of people who are trying to understand the love they feel for somebody else

This bd is a faithfull representation of one of the better romantic films ever made , althought the sound and visual are only marginally improved since the original film was purpously done guerilla and rough the typical hollywood gliter does not apply here, yet the larger image ( feels more like an upscale) and clearer sounds do add id say that the packaging is the real winner it's the best blu ray package i have bought, nice book with photos and a small analysis of the film and very collectors like case. Great buy for me.

Set in post-breakup No Man's Land , where everything and nothing proceeds in a half-awake haze, Movie No. 4 by the unstoppably cool Wong Kar Wai ,traps the kinetic bustle of its polyglot milieu ( i.e. Hong Kong, premillenial and agit ) on-cam , making this engaging diptych about two bachelor cops on the tailend of a jilt (Takeshi Kaneshiro and Tony Leung) and their elusive and spanking-new objects of affection (Brigitte Lin and Faye Wong), the most hyperactive movie about stasis. Part Godard, part guerilla , Wong Kar Wai is an iconoclast infatuated with the pursuit of happiness in a crumbling lifescape and "Chungking" is his most spellbindingly romantic. Despite its kinetic bustle, its traffic-blur action and its throbbing pop mantras , all HK movie standbys, "Chungking" has ,at its core, an intimate calm and wistful melancholy closer to Jim Jarmusch ("Stranger Than Paradise") than Ringo Lam. Champion date movie of any year, "Chungking Express" is a shout of psychedelic neon with the hush of a sweet nothing.

In between his romantic trilogy, Wong made this high style modernist take of life and love in Hong Kong. A cop (Tony Leung) and a free-spirit (Faye Wong) have a terrific but chaste romance. Overlapping story of a lovesick cop and a female assassin meet. Great use of American rock and role songs. Cool film dynamics.

The Mei Ah version is just as good as Criterion's. The transfer looks really good, just like Criterion's DVD. Also, the art is much better in my opinion. Criterion's art looks bland, where as the original poster art looks excellent for a DVD cover.

I purchased this movie only because I thought the guy from the movie, "The Lover" (Tony Leung) was going to be in it. But this (Tony Leung)doesn't look like him. Anyway, I thought this movie was kinda comical. It was pure Chinese dialog, with English words popping up each time the actors talked. This movie was fast pace, and a bit exciting. It was also romantic. Both stories were good, but I especially liked the first one. The guy was kinda handsome, and witty. He was a cop, but it seems as though he couldn't catch a crook; nor get a date. This made the film comical. The fact that he had an obsession with expired cans of pineapples was silly, but hilarious. The second story was weird, but also hilarious. All stories were romantic in a comical and weird way. At any rate, this was a pretty good movie.

I'm so happy this has been released on DVD Region 1! It's a nice transfer too, but there isn't much in the way of extras on the disc apart from a gushing Quentin Tarantino extolling the virtues of Wong Kar-wai. But who can blame him? Wong Kar-wai could possibly be one of the greatest directors alive today, and Chungking Express is a beautiful movie. It's wonderfully filmed and full of touching moments, humor, and a unique vision and atmosphere rarely encountered in mainstram cinema.
