Wong Kar Wai’s sophomore feature represents the first full flowering of his swooning signature style. This ravishing existential reverie is a dreamlike drift through the Hong Kong of the 1960s in which a band of wayward twenty-somethings pull together and push apart in a cycle of frustrated desire. DAYS OF BEING WILD is an exhilarating first expression of Wong’s trademark themes of time, longing, dislocation, and the restless search for human connection.
