Based on the fourth Wong Kai War movie I watched this week, colors should do the break point of the illustration.

Cowboy Bebop´s (1998) 5th episode, "Ballad of the Fallen Angels", is a reference to this extraordinaire movie. Fallen Angels (1995) is the kind of movie Quentin Tarantino dreams to do. I usually expect more subjectiveness and a more "artsy" style from non-American movies, but thanks to director Kai War Wong this perspective has just gained a wider angle. Working with Hong Kong´s action movie tradition added something to his style that I haven´t seen in neither French, Iranian, Japanese, or whatever other country´s movies. And the best part is that this isn´t his strength. His fluid protagonist/narrator shift may even surpass Robert Altman´s direction style. Due to this, he also shifts genres in a way that I have never seen before.
