Chungking Express (1994) Wong Kar-wai

"Beyond the Mamas and the Papas, 'Chungking Express' is filled with global-village references to fast food, video, convenience stores, Bruce Willis and Demi Moore. While Mr. Wong's visual energy harks back to early New Wave experimentation, it also has a substantial rock-video component, which suggests that the detritus of mass culture has a way of coming home to roost." (NY Times)

But is it boring? No.
