Despite being such a small, cramped space, lil’ ol’ Hong Kong punches well above its weight. From the city’s top restaurants and their slew of Michelin stars to Hong Kong’s best bars, which are among the most creative in the region, our city proves that size isn’t everything. In fact, at the height of its influence, only the USA and India produced more films than Hong Kong. And our cinema is one of tremendous variety, too. From adaptations of popular Chinese opera, to Johnnie To’s gritty crime noirs, to the tales of repressed heartache that made Wong Kar-wai internationally famous, Hong Kong cinema can do it all. So what are the best Hong Kong movies of all time? Edmund Lee presents his definitive list chock full of some of the best films ever made anywhere on the planet.
