A Fei zheng chuan

Wong Kar-wai Hong Kong, 1990

joey Noodles's rating of the film Days of Being Wild

In comparison with later Wong, namely In the Mood For Love and Happy Together it may seem somewhat lesser in comparison, but still retains an incredible poignancy and sense of yearning. All of the characters in this film are reaching out desperately for something they can't touch and as the film draws to its conclusion we understand they'll never have it. Hauntingly beautiful precursor to later masterworks. 4/5
