I have no idea why American critics called this movie isolating and difficult for casual viewers to understand on its original release. There’s nothing more relatable than eating 30 cans of pineapple with hot sauce when your ex basically leaves you on read.
Every character in ‘Chungking Express’ is an absolute weirdo, and every frame explodes with their chaotic energy. It’s such a sustained sensory trip that it even makes expired canned pineapple look sexy.
