Days of Being Wild
DIRECTOR: WONG KAR-WAI
CAST: LESLIE CHEUNG, MAGGIE CHEUNG, ANDY LAU
Wong Kar-wai’s second film (and his first with DP Christopher Doyle) stars Leslie Cheung as Yuddy, a careless Casanova in 1960 Hong Kong. Maggie Cheung is the first emotional casualty of his indifference, later seen embarking on a tentative relationship with a sympathetic police patrolman (Andy Lau). Full of bold narrative leaps and pregnant with yearning, Days of Being Wild lays out all the essential elements of Wong’s fully-formed style.
