A disillusioned Hong Kong contract killer falls for his professional partner in Wong’s loose follow-up to Chungking Express, a similar “love letter to Hong Kong nights” (New York Newsday) that somehow tops Chungking’s neon-illuminated romantic aesthetic. Killer (Leon Lai) does the work, while Agent (Michelle Reis) books the clients; Killer wants a way out, preferably with Agent in tow, but encounters with such nocturnal denizens as Takeshi Kaneshiro, Charlie Yeung, and Karen Mok may complicate matters. “A pyrotechnical wonder about mystery, solitude, and the irrational love of movies” (J. Hoberman), Fallen Angels “takes every risk known to filmmaking, and succeeds triumphantly” (Sight & Sound).
