As Tears Go By (1988)

Wong Kar Wai's first film is his most meaningless and least interesting to me. Here lie the first traces (that I have seen) of his later developed trademarks--flashy, blurry camera, and use of popular Western songs. But this update of Martin Scorsese's mean streets tale doesn't have the impact of the original. I much prefer Kar Wai's artistic triumphs in the 90s and into the new century.
