        You can get away with being an insufferable mute autist so long as you're chad. My uncle was right beautiful people never lose

          He wasn't insufferable, except towards the people he was bugging. He's a very likeable character, and would be so if he was ugly, just not as likeable as he is when also good looking. But personally I don't think you can separate face from character, they're always emblematic of each other in some way.

        why was the boy with the cigarette pestering people throughout the entire movie? did he see they were kinda shitty and wanted to mock them or he was just a relentless oblivious
        troll? his dad seemed sweet and was the person he bugged the most

          It was just the way he acted because he could never communicate with people normally, but also he wanted the people on the street to buy his stuff. IIRC his treatment of his dad was just a front for his real love for him.

    Literally, because they've changed all the streetlights. They are soulless now.

      I think it's also the society has fundamentally changed. All around the world, anywhere that's even slightly built up, there's a whole lot more bureaucracy and official mandates and implicit removal of individuals' privacy and liberty. The world is becoming more and more a soulless technological husk. The neon lights were emblematic of capitalism just producing an authentic culture, you know people produce them and people buy them for their stores and it all works out naturally, but there's no room for that kind of naturally developed city culture anymore.

    For some reason this movie never shows up in all those best of lists despite being really loved by so many people.

      Most people prefer the drama of Chunking Express, but the overall atmosphere and world of Fallen Angels is better.

      Best-of lists generally focus on a director's most popular film unless it's one of the really big directors, and in this case that's In the Mood for Love. Also, Chungking Express is better.

        Its the usual "I always wanted to film it like this" George Lucas bullshit you always hear. All of his films have different color filters applied but Fallen Angels gets the worst treatment.
        >Lastly, it’s worth noting the controversial new changes made to the presentation of the film as a result of last year’s collaboration between Wong Kar-wai and Criterion to “restore” several of the director’s works. Of the restorations, Fallen Angels arguably received the highest number of alterations, including a wholly different aspect ratio (an anamorphic 2.39:1 instead of the original 1.85:1) and scenes originally in color either re-colorized or switched to black-and-white. According to Wong, these changes present in the restoration are more faithful to his original vision for the film

          Just searched up some of them, those are all truly awful. And apparently it's the only edition you can buy now. Just ridiculous.

        Is this were we pretend that shitloads of DVDs of classic films don't have horrid revisionist digital color grading? DVDs and Blu-Rays both suffer from mentally ill color graders, just depends on the film in question.

          DVDs are fine, at least the ones I own are completely fine. I notice very often that 4k releases, Bluray or Criterion releases mess things up. Bluray can still be solid but not always

            There tons of dogshit DVDs that look nothing like a film print would.
            It was the era when digital color grading was new and few knew how to use it, leading to tons of """remasters""" destroying colors with auto white-balance.

      Personally I think they should have just dedicated the whole movie to the mute and spurned woman. It mogged the other storyline so much, and it deserved more time.
