I'm not necessarily looking for entertainment but something that will make me learn about the place.

You might try the films of Wong Kar-Wai or the video game Sleeping Dogs (2012). If you liked Martin Scorsese's film The Departed (2006), you might like the film it was based on, Infernal Affairs (2002, directed by Alan Lam). Johnnie To's Election films are great as well.

I've already seen The Killer and Hard Boiled actually. Yes, that long cut in the Hospital is pretty awesome. I was expecting other suggestions though.

Hong Kong is responsible for some of the greatest action movies of all time. John Woo created A Better Tomorrow (1986), The Killer (1989), and Hard Boiled (1992), which pioneered the type of "gun fu" we would later see in films like The Matrix (1999) and John Wick (2014).

Jackie Chan was also in a lot of great action films, like Drunken Master (1978), The Legend of Drunken Master (1994), and the Police Story series in the 1980s. He mixed Bruce Lee-type martial arts with slapstick comedy reminiscent of Buster Keaton.
