Wong Kar-wai’s Chungking Express Returns for Its 30th Anniversary

Have this article read to you, listen to it like a podcast

Celebrate 30 years of Wong Kar-wai’s beloved masterpiece, Chungking Express!

Every day, Cop 223 (Takeshi Kaneshiro) buys a can of pineapple with an expiration date of May 1, symbolizing the day he’ll get over his lost love. He’s also got his eye on a mysterious woman in a blond wig (Brigitte Lin), oblivious of the fact she’s a drug dealer. Cop 663 (Tony Leung Chiu Wai) is distraught with heartbreak over a breakup. But when his ex drops a spare set of his keys at a local cafe, a waitress (Faye Wong) lets herself into his apartment and spruces up his life.

A highly influential stroke of film genius, Chungking Express fuses different genres to become a true hallmark of 90s arthouse cinema.
