Days of Rain" belongs to the now-familiar genre of overlapping tales of
urban desperation staked out by Robert Altman in "Short Cuts" and seen
most recently in Paul Haggis's "Crash"...Above all an actor's
movie....Falk, revisiting Cassavetes territory, is a charmer with
exactly the right amount of vulnerbility below the bluster....Written
and directed with great delicacy by young Mr. Meredith....A thoughtful
film about isolation and seperation"
