Audience Reviews for Days of Being Wild

  • Sep 30, 2015
    Days of Being Wild delivers as expected: a highly aesthetic and enjoyable film. You can feel the humidity of melancholy summer nights and sense the fatalistic but untragic vibe the characters give off. This is quintessential HK cinema and easy to recommend.

    Wong Kar Wai's somehow reaching his unique style in here

    Great little film by the fantastic Wong Kar-Wai. Very engaging and beautiful.

    Wong Kar Wai and Maggie Cheung. Together, a project couldn't possibly go off the ropes and it doesn't here. Those who saw In the Mood for Love should treat themselves to early Wai.
