Faye Wong aka Xia Lin (1969-) was already a pop star when Kar-wai cast her as Faye in Chungking Express. Here is Wong performing her cover of “Dreams”Wong starred in only a couple more films before returning to her Canto-Pop career, notably Kar-wai’s 2046 and Chinese Odyssey (Jeffrey Lau, 2002). What a shame. Which do you preferKar-wai’s hip art film Chungking Express or Ang Lee’s version of a traditional wuxia film with Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon? Do you prefer Lee’s approach to wuxia and martial arts cinema over The 36th Chamber of Shaolin? HistoryWorld History HUM 161
