Days of Being Wild

The The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston is playing an old Wong Kar-Wai film that I played in my house on Hopkins street a long time ago, Days of Being Wild. I think the wilting heat and humidity of the film is perfect to kick off summer in Houston. I wish I was there for the film but am glad I am not there for the summer.

This richly colored labyrinth of desperation and unfulfilled need established Wong Kar-Wai as one of modern cinema┬┤s undisputed visionaries. Days of Being Wild follows six characters in 1960s Hong Kong through their individual searches for love, intimacy, and connection. The cast includes Wong veterans Leslie Cheung, Maggie Cheung, and Tony Leung, and the intoxicating images of master cinematographer Christopher Doyle (Hero) become characters in their own right.
