I LIED, I HAVE MORE TO SAY.

I also love how in Wong Kar-wai movies, the more public the setting around the characters, the more internal and private the action is.

Frex, in FALLEN ANGELS when The Killer meets the Blond Girl in a deserted McDonald's, or in Chungking Express when Sunglasses Woman is in the station and realizes she's been had.

Every scene of a Wong film feels like voyeurism, but a very particular brand of empathetic, non-titillating voyeurism.

"Look," Wong seems to be saying, "you never know what that person on the street is suffering, you never know their private heartbreak."
