Wong Kar Wai
With films such as As Tears Go By, Days of Being Wild, Chungking Expressand Ashes of Time, Kar-Wai has been at the forefront of Hong Kong cinema. On the surface, Kar-Wai follows the rules, presenting the usual fare of car chases, explosions and sex, but in fact his films are much deeper. His characters live and die on the fringe of acceptance and existence, in a nebulous grey area between good and almost evil. Wong-Kai has managed to invent an art that refuses the affluence of the West: by sticking his guns (and knives, fists and chains), this film director has created a bridge between Hong Kong and the rest of the world.
