Fallen Angels 15
From the archive
This film was last shown on 12 August 2021
Lost souls reach out for human connection amidst the glimmering lights of Hong Kong by night in Wong Kar-Wai’s hallucinatory, neon-soaked film. Originally conceived as a segment of Chungking Express only to spin off on its own woozy axis, this hyper-cool head rush plays like the dark, moody flip side to Kar-Wai’s breakout feature as it charts the subtly interlacing fates of a handful of urban loners.
Swinging between hardboiled noir and slapstick lunacy with giddy abandon, Fallen Angels is both a dizzying, dazzling city symphony and a poignant meditation on love, loss, and longing in a metropolis that never sleeps.
