July 31, 2005
Twelve years after first seeing Days of Being Wild, I'm finally developing some fondness for it.
March 12, 2005
The '60s were a time of alienation and sadness, which I suppose Wong was trying to reflect here. But he's chosen characters so monumentally self-destructive that it's difficult to care about them.

Unless the film is pure homage, the film lacks authenticity

Wong has a reputation for slow-moving mood pieces in which very little happens, but that's not the case here.
February 28, 2005
Wong's always-striking visual style uses floating, neon colors and extreme angles to emphasize disconnected souls.
February 25, 2005
Needless to say a must-see for Wongcolytes, Days of Being Wild is also an excellent entry point for people who haven't yet caught this most exotic and habit-forming of cinematic bugs.

February 18, 2005
It now seems like a promising apprentice work, almost a blueprint for the writer-director's most acclaimed and famous film, In the Mood for Love.

There are images in Days that can make your heart stop for no other reason than that they're perfect.

The languorous atmosphere of longing, disconnection and emotional isolation is hypnotic.

February 3, 2005
It may have been released in the olden days of 1991, but Wong Kar-Wai's Days of Being Wild remains pulsatingly contemporary.
January 13, 2005
A triumph of movie pop poetics.

A heady mix of sex, obsession, alienation and angst.

January 6, 2005
Feels exciting, in part, because you are watching an auteur lay the groundwork -- with an assortment of clocks, watches and meticulously detailed moments -- for ideas and moods he will obsessively follow in later films.
November 29, 2004
In many ways, Days of Being Wild anticipated the overall pattern of its writer-director- auteur's haunting career.
November 20, 2004
Wong creates a dream state of shifting, stalling, liquid time, a kind of gauzy unreality that made In the Mood for Love so seductive.

November 18, 2004
A rapturous film about cool men, hot women and the thousand and one nights and cigarettes they share.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/5
November 18, 2004
It's inexplicable that Wong's early masterpiece has been virtually absent from American screens since he completed it in 1991.
