LOCAL>> Lark Virtual Cinema – Wong Kar Wai Film Retrospective

7-film retrospective of one of contemporary cinema’s most influential filmmakers

With his lush and sensual visuals, pitch-perfect soundtracks, and soulful romanticism, Wong Kar Wai has established himself as one of the defining auteurs of contemporary cinema.

Joined by key collaborators such as cinematographer Christopher Doyle, editor and production and costume designer William Chang, and actors Tony Leung and Maggie Cheung, Wong (or WKW, as he is often known) has enraptured audiences and critics worldwide and inspired countless other filmmakers with his movies’ poetic moods, narrative and stylistic daring, and potent themes of alienation and memory.

Whether tragically romantic, soaked in blood, or quirkily comedic, the films in this retrospective are an invitation into the unique and wistful world of a deeply influential artist.

Janus Films is proud to present the following Wong Kar Wai classics in brand-new 4K restorations, in addition to a new director’s cut of The Hand: As Tears Go By, Days of Being Wild, Chungking Express, Fallen Angels, Happy Together, and In the Mood for Love.

 

Movie Selections:

As Tears Go By
1988, 1hr 42min, Cantonese with English Subtitles
Wong Kar Wai’s scintillating debut feature is a kinetic, hypercool crime thriller graced with flashes of the impressionistic, daydream visual style for which he would become renowned.

Days of Being Wild
1990, 1hr 34min, In Cantonese with English Subtitles
Wong Kar Wai’s breakthrough feature represents the first full flowering of his swooning signature style. The first film in a loosely connected, ongoing cycle that includes In the Mood for Love and 2046, this ravishing existential reverie is a dreamlike drift through the Hong Kong of the 1960s about a band of wayward twentysomethings.

Chungking Express
1994, 1hr 42min, Cantonese with English Subtitles
The whiplash, double-pronged Chungking Express is one of the defining works of 1990s cinema and the film that made Wong Kar Wai an instant icon.

Fallen Angels
1995, 1hr 39min, Cantonese with English Subtitles
Lost souls reach out for human connection amid a glimmering Hong Kong in Wong Kar Wai’s hallucinatory, neon-soaked nocturne. Fallen Angels plays like the dark, moody flip side of its iconic predecessor as it charts the subtly interlacing fates of a handful of urban loners.

Happy Together
1997, 1hr 36min, Cantonese with English Subtitles
One of the most searing romances of the 1990s, Wong Kar Wai’s emotionally raw, lushly stylized portrait of a relationship in breakdown casts Hong Kong superstars Tony Leung and Leslie Cheung as a couple traveling through Argentina and locked in a turbulent cycle of infatuation and destructive jealousy.

In the Mood for Love
2000, 1hr 39min, Cantonese with English Subtitles
At once delicately mannered and visually extravagant, Wong Kar Wai’s In the Mood for Love is a masterful evocation of romantic longing and fleeting moments.

The Hand – Extended Cut
2004, 56min, Cantonese with English Subtitles
Like In the Mood for Love, The Hand is set in the hazy Hong Kong of the 1960s, but its characters couldn’t be more different from the earlier film’s restrained, haunted lovers.
