2003 - The Year in Review

2003 was the year that, for me, and for many fans, Hong Kong Cinema died. With the loss of Anita Mui and Leslie Cheung, two of the biggest reasons I watched Hong Kong movies disappeared. There really isn't much more to say about the year in review, and in any case I don't really feel particularly motivated to look any further. Maybe next year, things will look better. So instead of any additional commentary, find below a list of Box Office figures, and award winners from the Hong Kong Film Awards, the Golden Bauhina Awards, the Golden Horse Awards (Taiwan), and the Hong Kong Critics Society winners.
