5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful inside view of Hong Kong
Hong Kong is often a study of the absurd, but it always has a way of captivating you. This movie manages to capture much of both sides of this. While those who know Hong Kong find some of the continuity a little jumpy (how do they get from Hong Kong to Kowloon and back so fast?), it is a gem of a visual introduction to living in the real Hong Kong. Filmed almost entirely...

3.0 out of 5 stars Arthouse flick that might not be for everyone's taste
Chungking express has some bizarre yet interesting group of characters.

5.0 out of 5 stars You may think this movie isn't good, but you're wrong., March 4 2000

The overpowering things about this movie were the feelings that it managed to capture. The first story (which, for those who complain the second one is too long, is shorter in some versions) has a darker, lonelier quality to it. The second story (which didn't go on long enough for me) was light-hearted and happy in a weird sort of way. Principally, this movie turns around a place and a theme rather than a set of characters and a single plot. As with any serious artistic endeavor, the important thing is the feeling. Watch and feel, rather than analyzing-at least the first time. For those who say it has no plot, well, it has more plot than those movies you like! It has TWO plots! Twice as much as most movies! The other important quality, for me, was the subtlety of how everything was fitted together. Much more is suggested than actually said. In particular, watch for the first scene Faye shows up in! It's much earlier in the movie than you might expect.

"siomai" (Manila, Philippines) - See all my reviews
this is definitely definitely great. we watched this in my film class and is this film a crazy one! the second part is hilarious! the lead actor talking to the soap bar saying something like, "why didn't you take care of yourself? now you're all fat" not realizing it's not the same soap but a a new replacement..something like that. funny!! yet with substance.
