Chung Hing sam lam / Chungking Express
Ah fei zing zyun / Days of Being Wild
Yi dai zong shi / The Grandmaster
Faa yeung nin wa / In the Mood for Love


Thought of him as a director I didn't quite embrace just because of my understated reaction to In the Mood for Love, but it's starting to look like that was wrong. Will certainly watch more, 2046 being the obvious way to go next probably.

Torn between In the Mood for Love and Happy Together, so I threw the latter a pity vote.
