Equally watchable as A Better Tomorrow,
By A Customer
This review is from: As Tears Go By [VHS] (VHS Tape)
The two superstars who dominated the Hongkong cinema in the 90's had their debut with this movie, Wong Kar-Wei and Maggie Cheung. The story is about two gangsters and their friendship, which is very typical of Hongkong gangster movies and makes it very watchable on the whole. Camera movement and angles are stunning and give us a glimpse of the Wong Kar-Wei style used in Chungking Express (1994). Also outstanding is the acting of Jackie Cheung, playing a loser who is willing to give up his life in order to `save face`. It is equally watchable as A Better Tomorrow of John Woo and absolutely worth seeing.
