    Can not tie unconnected stories into a central theme. "Birds without legs" imagery is forced. Narrative is Inconsistent (use of several inner voices, addressing the audience). Caricature eccentric mother, a girl starting with a dramatic effect but ending up as a meek character...
    Promises something but clearly over-valued.

    All those seriously interested in foreign cinema are encouraged to take a look at this atmospheric drama -- sure to be remembered as one of the key achievements of the Hong Kong cinema in the 1990s.

    Revived (with vastly improved subtitles) some 14 years after it first stunned Hong Kong critics, Days of Being Wild is a sort of meta-reverie populated by a cast of beautiful young pop icons.
  3. It's inexplicable that Wong's early masterpiece has been virtually absent from American screens since he completed it in 1991.
