Critics reviews

As Tears Go By is in many ways a routine gangster drama… Yet the film is also charged with impulses of the art film. Wong took the over-the-top tradition of 1980s Hong Kong cinema and ran with it, adding fresh doses of formal fanfare without diluting the commercial appeal of genre conventions, at the same time challenging established notions of the triad film.
