1991 Taiwanese drama film directed by Edward Yang. The film is an extraordinarily large project for a Chinese-language film, not only for its duration of almost four hours, but also for its involvement of more than 100 amateur actors in different roles. The title is derived from the lyrics of Elvis Presley's "Are You Lonesome Tonight?".

"8.4. Edward Yangin nelituntisessa megaelokuvassa hidastempoinen kasvutarina toimii erittäin hyvin. Valitettavasti 1950-luvun lopun ja 60-luvun alun nuorisojengien välienselvittelyt väkivaltaisuuksineen eivät ole sellaista elokuvaa, joka kiinnostaisi minua aivan älyttömästi. Tämä onkin oikeastaan ainoa valittamisen aihe teknisesti erittäin pätevässä elokuvassa."
