You might have noticed that among the movies we rated for this month's movie night were three different titles by Wong. In the upcoming movie night we will be watching Chungking Express by this director, hence getting familiar with his work and style may help us in better understanding and communicating with the film. Wong is considered one of the postmodern auteurs of cinema. "In film criticism, the 1950s-era Auteur theory holds that a director's films reflect that director's personal creative vision, as if he or she were the primary "Auteur" (French word for "author")." -wikipedia
Here are the links to some articles on this directors work and vision.
