The time Won Kar Wai spent writing scripts for TV soap operas is apparent in the narrative's episodic drift, as well as his admiration for such photographers as Robert Frank, Henri Cartier-Bresson and Richard Avedon, can be seen in the sharp attention to surface detail. Stylish and assured, with a soundtrack featuring lush easy listening tunes from the 1950s, Days of Being Wild has the added distinction of bringing together three of Cantopop's top-selling singers, Leslie Cheung, Andy Lau and Tony Cheung. It's this kind of dream-like, pop culture surrealism that has helped put Won Kar Wai in a league all his own. --Ken Hollings --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
