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?".

" Date: 2/2/2021 Viewed: Criterion Channel First Viewing Note: After watching Yi Yi (2000) for the first time back in August, I wanted to check out more movies from Edward Yang. This is a movie that I always heard about for years, but the long run time has put me away from seeing it. I do like watching long movies, but sometimes I need to be in the right mood to watch them. Seeing that I'm stuck inside during the middle of a snowstorm, I have the time to sit down and watch it. After watching t"

"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."
