We gave it a B

There are few movies more romantic than this — or actresses who top Wong as the takeout clerk who falls for a brokenhearted beat cop (Leung, a.k.a. China’s Cary Grant) and starts sneaking into his apartment just to clean it. Yet Criterion doesn’t lavish much on Chungking Express besides a scholarly commentary and a sit-down with director Wong Kar-Wai and cinematographer Christopher Doyle. The disc gets a B, the film an A
