As Tears Go By








Director - Wong Kar Wai

Genre - Crime/Drama


A slightly conventional and commercial debut film by Wong Kar Wai. It is interesting to note that once this movie made his name, he never looked back. Every film after this is personal and tested the perimeters of filmmaking. There isn't anything wrong with this one other than the tacky 80's clothing though. Andy Lau and Jackie Cheung play two underlings of a triad organization terrorized by a devious villain acted with mischievous glee by Alex Man. A good starting point for Wong.

3 STARS!
