Wong Kar-wai's filmography covers everything from heart-wrenching dramas (In the Mood for Love) to martial arts epics (Ashes of Time) to surreal romantic comedies (My Blueberry Nights). His biggest film to date, The Grandmasters, set for a Hong Kong premier next month, is said to dip its toes in a number of genres, which is hardly surprising.

The fact that film snobs and mainstream moviegoers can appreciate Wong Kar-wai's work makes him the ideal director to pick from while planning the all-important let's-watch-a-movie-at-my-place date. Check out this list of WKW classics and their makeout-potential indices, but choose wisely: results may vary.
