Chungking Express (EOTWS)

End Of The Week Shorts #8.2 extract: Chungking Express (1994)

Technically brilliant and highly immersive, Chungking Express was a film I thoroughly enjoyed watching. Despite being an expressive exploration of isolation, loneliness and romance, I wasn't drawn into this film's characters and story. I was much rather thrown into a cinematic spiral by the all-consuming tone conjured by the style and tone. 
This, however, doesn't mean that the story or characters are weakly constructed. Instead, I just need to watch this movie again - which certainly won't be a task.
