Review: 'Days'

Tsai Ming-liang's Days opened in select U.S. cities last month, and will be screening nightly this Fri-Sun at the Webster Univeristy Film Series. Critic Andrew Wyatt has a review of the Taiwanese filmmaker's new drama, his first in eight years:

"Somewhat unexpectedly, Days turns out to be one of the filmmaker’s most accessible features to date – “accessible” being a relative thing for a director whose work could be glibly but not inaccurately described as “nothing happens, and slowly.” [...] The film's simple, heartbreaking story is remarkably easy to parse. To wit: Two men, each living alone, go about their daily lives. They meet and share a night of connection, and then go their separate ways. Occasionally, they think of one another. Roll credits."
