Kar-Wai Wong – Wang Jiao ka men AKA As Tears Go By (1988)

Quote:
Set on the mean streets of Hong Kong in the late eighties, “As Tears Go By” is the tale of two lowly gangsters, Ah Wah and his side-kick Fly trapped in a endless downward spiral of violence and vengeance. Overview: A low-level triad “big brother” (Andy Lau) has a hot-tempered “little brother” (Jacky Cheung) who can’t keep out of trouble, and consequently is in constant need of being bailed out by his protector. Andy is super cool, but lacks the ambition to rise in the ranks of the triad societies, and once he meets his cousin (Maggie Cheung), and falls in love with her, he decides he wants to leave “the life”. But it turns out that he has to bail out Jacky one more time. And this time, Jacky may have gone too far. Read More »

Elizabeth’s heart is broken. For solace, she drops in late at night a few times at Jeremy’s diner for blueberry pie a la mode; they talk. Once, he watchers her sleep, her head on the counter. Abruptly, she leaves New York City to get away from her pain. She works a couple of jobs in Memphis. There, a heart-broken cop is drinking himself into oblivion, his ex occasionally showing up where he drinks and Lizzy works. Then, she’s in Nevada, working at a casino where she uses her savings (she wants a car) to stake Leslie, a busted gambler, in a high rollers’ game. After, Beth drives Leslie to Vegas where Leslie’s estranged father lives. Broken relationships. What about Jeremy? Read More »
