Wong gok ka moon (Kar Wai Wong, 1988) aka As Tears Go By

As Tears Go By (Kar Wai Wong, 1988)
Rating: 6.7

Kar Wai Wong's first feature film is a pretty run of the mill and predictable gangster film, with an overabundance of slow shutter speed sequences, slow motion, and a pretty awful soundtrack that makes it feel all the more 80s (ewww), but it does show flashes of his unique visual style which he would later fine tune.
