Live Poll: Best Hong Kong Movies

The influence of Hong Kong cinema can be seen far and wide. Bruce Lee remains a global icon, his martial arts movies classics. The groundbreaking action of The Matrix would never have come about if not for John Woo films and the action chereography of Yuen Woo-ping. Quentin Tarantino ripped off Ringo Lam’s City on Fire for his debut, 1992’s Reservoir Dogs. Moonlight owes much to the style of Wong Kar-wai films and the autuer was an influence acknowledged by Soffia Coppola when she collected the Oscar for Best Original Screenplay for Lost in Translation. While Oscar winning film, The Departed is a remake of Infernal Affairs.

Which movie included in the list do you like the most?

If I ever recreate my top 50 list of all time favorite films?

 
In the Mood for Love  and  Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon (2000)   would still remain in the top 20 or even 15.

Chungking Express (1994) will be in the top 30ish?

It's an insane criminal omission that Kar-Wai Wong doesn't have an Oscar nomination!

A few typos:

autuer -> auteur
Soffia -> Sofia Coppola

 Infernal Affairs (2002).
Gripping and intelligent story with fantastic acting, including a typically stellar performance from Tony Leung. Inspiration behind Martin Scorcese's The Departed - but for me, Infernal Affairs is a tighter film whose story hangs together better. Thoroughly recommended

'Good poll. I noticed one missing word in the we'll-written, informative intro:

While the Oscar winning film, The Departed, is a remake of Infernal Affairs.

I love Hong Kong (lived there for about two months) and this is a good tribute to some of its films. :)

The fact that 'The Host' wasn't included made this poll more difficult for me.

If you mean that movie, it's from South Korea.
