Image for World of Wong Kar Wai

With his lush and sensual visuals, pitch-perfect soundtracks, and soulful romanticism, Wong Kar Wai has established himself as one of the defining auteurs of contemporary cinema. Joined by key collaborators such as cinematographer Christopher Doyle, editor and production and costume designer William Chang, and actors Tony Leung and Maggie Cheung, Wong (or WKW, as he is often known) has enraptured audiences and critics worldwide.

He’s inspired countless other filmmakers with his movies’ poetic moods, narrative and stylistic daring, and potent themes of alienation and memory. Whether tragically romantic, soaked in blood, or quirkily comedic, the films in this retrospective are an invitation into the unique and wistful world of a deeply influential artist.

Janus Films is proud to present the following Wong Kar Wai classics in brand-new 4K restorations: As Tears Go By, Days of Being Wild, Chungking Express, Fallen Angels, Happy Together, 2046 and In the Mood for Love. Plus, a new director’s cut of The Hand.
