Beautiful and twisted, this is a feast for the eyes and ears all the way through. The meat of the film lies in the numerous emotions and feelings one gets out of the experience rather than in the plot or character development. A work of mad genius.

There's a few good scenes in here but they're drowned out by mediocre ones and the completely overbearing style. Often hard to care for the characters and their frequently sociopathic actions. Feels like unprocessed leftovers from Chungking Express, with a fraction of the charm.

Almost as if Chunking Express was drunkenly directed by John Woo on a pub crawl through a neon-lit Hong Kong. The soundtrack and cinematography are cool as fuck - love me some Christopher Doyle - but they're wasted on a story that has a hard time balancing its many different moods, characters and tones into one satisfying and coherent whole.

Hyperkinetic editing, distorted lenses, canted angles, switches to black-and-white, adjustments to speed and clarity of image... Wong employs literally everything in his arsenal in his attempt to evoke these five characters' mad desperation to connect to someone around them, and damned it isn't utterly marvelous. Look at the go-for-broke style here, compare it to the aesthetic rigor of In the Mood for Love, and be amazed. Oh, and it's morbidly hilarious, too.

It's pretty much more Chungking Express, and I ain't gonna complain. Characters' behavior is clearly an exaggerated expression of social intricacies, but upon further reflection, the wonderful thing is that they're not really so far removed from reality. The film walks this fine line between sincerity and absurdity. It's like the embodiments of comedy and tragedy are staring at each other through a mirror and having a conversation about loneliness and communication in a densely urban world.
