See all As Tears Go By Reviews
||This sounds like a fairly standard debut. But Wong smothers the story with tremendous style.|
||As Tears Go By doesn't measure up to Wong's later classics, such as In the Mood for Love (2000) and Chungking Express (1994), but it shows a master in the making.|
Unpersuasive as drama, Tears is the first and last Wong movie touched by any feel of the obligatory.
