average rating MPAA rating watch rent buy
A Better Tomorrow (1986)
Not Rated
  Making the move from pop idol to serious actor, Leslie's portrayal of the sullen Kit rivals the performances of co-stars Chow Yun-fat and Ti Lung in its intensity and heartbreaking honesty.
A Chinese Ghost Story (1987)
  Leslie combined innocence and sensuality in his sympathetic role as a hapless young scholar who falls in love with a ghost.
Rouge (1988)
Not Rated
  The explosive pairing of Cheung and Anita Mui, whose music careers were both predicated on images of ambiguous sexuality, makes for a sensual smorgasbord in Stanley Kwan's classic film.
Once a Thief (1991)
  Both Leslie and Chow Yun-fat are fun and fabulous in this entertaining crime caper. "Do you know me?"
Farewell My Concubine (1993)
  Advertised in the West as a Gong Li vehicle, the film truly belongs to Leslie, whose portrayal of gay opera star Cheng Dieyi strikes heartbreakingly close to his own experiences on and off the stage.
Ashes of Time (1994)
  Leslie's enigmatic Ouyang taunts and tantalalizes through the lavishly murky cinematography of Christopher Doyle.
The Chinese Feast (1996)
  Hands down the funniest film of Leslie's career, in which he plays a love-smitten gangster who wants to be a chef.
Shanghai Grand (1996)
Not Rated
  Short on plot, but Leslie and Andy Lau are very, very pretty to watch.
Happy Together (1997)
  Petulant, pouty Leslie in one of his finest performances as a gay man whose relationship with Tony Leung is on the skids in Argentina
Inner Senses (2001)
Not Rated
  A hint of what might have come...this too-haunting film was Leslie's last.
