Summary: Mesmerizing material
As a HK cinema buff who don't care about Wong Kar Wai, I thoroughly enjoyed this follow-up to Chung King Express. Screwed up characters (and lives), infinite lonely sadness, ultra cool music, electrifying performances, and flashy/slow-mo cinematography at its best. This doesn't work in wuxia movies (a la Ashes of Time), but apply it over an all-random modern-day script and it becomes true art.

I should also mention that, to me, the stylish shootouts were more captivating than anything John Woo ever did.
