Via twitchfilm.net : The Hong Kong Film Critics Association announced their winners for the past year.
Best Picture : Kung Fu Hustle -an excellent and funny film, which I enjoyed much more than Shaolin Soccer. Kung Fu Hustle had its World premiere in Toronto at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) 2004
Best Director – Ye Tung-Shing for “One Nite in Mongkok” – very good , lots of tension. Shown recently on Omini TV 2.
Best Screenplayer – Edmond Pang for “Beyond Our Ken” This goes on my must watch list.
Best Cinematography – Christopher Doyle for “2046” from what I’ve seen another visually delicious film. Christopher Doyle knows how to make Wong Kar-Wai look good. He also gets the award for working with Wong Kar-Wai. More : Kar Wai Wong’s 2046
Best Actor – Tony Leung Chiu Wai for “2046” – a first rate actor.
Best Supporting Actress – Bai Ling in “Dumpling – Three Extreme” – Horror films “arn’t my thing”, but I have heard very good things about this. Might it be a horror in the Alfred Hitchcock sense? Bai Ling is most famous in North America for her appearances in “Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow” and the soon to be released “Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith“.
