"Fallen Angels is more challenging visually than any mainstream Hollywood film I've ever seen." David Nusair, REEL FILM REVIEWS "I felt transported back to the 1960s films of Jean-Luc Godard. I was watching a film that was not afraid of its audience." Roger Ebert, CHICAGO SUN-TIMES "An exhilarating rush of a movie, with all manner of go-for-broke visual bravura that expresses perfectly the free spirits of [Wong's] bold young people." Kevin Thomas, LOS ANGELES TIMES"

Synopsis
Ming is an ice-cold killer but tired of the risks, he wants to quit. His agent, who has broken the professional code of no personal involvement, persuades him to do one last job. With fatal results. From master filmmaker Wong Kar-Wai. Directors of IN THE MOOD FOR LOVE and the groundbreaking CHUNGKING EXPRESS, comes a Hong Kong film noir. An intoxicating and kinetic journey from the east that could have been rightfully made at the height of the French New Wave. Stylish, touching and frantically paced with sumptuous photography from Australian cinematographer Christopher Doyle.
