Chungking Express ★★★★½

i love love loved it. 

i have a compulsory third year of uni in hong kong from late august - may and i’ve been terrified for sooo long, and today i finally got a bit more information about the whole exchange.

i got recommended this film about three years ago but back then i wasn’t into film anywhere near as much as i am now. it came up again as a suggestion for me recently, but i only like to watch foreign films if i can trust myself to give them my full attention. the combination of finally knowing what im doing next academic year and this being film society's screening this week were pretty perfect timing; so i went along by myself and just admired it all.

its exactly the kind of film i think everyone would expect me to like, especially when you consider that some of my favourites are before sunrise, columbus and call me by your name!
