    Default Hong Kong Movies 🇭🇰 🇨🇳

    I have just started to watch productions from this special administrative region of China (and from the time when it was a British Dependent Territory). The first one I watched yesterday was 龍虎風雲/Lung foo fung wan (City on Fire). It has been on my watch-list for a very long time now, which is due to the fact that I have read that Quentin Tarantino was inspired to make his debut movie Reservoir Dogs thanks to this Hong Kong flick – and it shows! It was kind of slow in the beginning, but got better in the end; no wonder that Tarantino made a whole movie based on mostly the end of this flick!

    Today I watched 無間道/Mou gaan dou (Infernal Affairs). Like with 龍虎風雲/Lung foo fung wan (City on Fire), the end was a lot better than the rest of the movie. Another problem with this movie, was that one did not feel much for the characters. They were kind of starched. For example, one did get the impression that the female psychologist was thrown into the movie because they wanted to have a female character with whom Chan Wing-yan could have an intimate relation.

    Have any of you seen some Hong Kong movies?
    “And, furthermore, that some people have a sex life and others don’t just because some are more attractive than others. I wanted to acknowledge that if people don’t have a sex life, it’s not for some moral reason, it’s just because they’re ugly. Once you’ve said it, it sounds obvious, but I wanted to say it.” — Michel Houellebecq
