Short Desription

Chinese cinema continues to go from strength to strength.  After art-house hits like Yellow Earth and In the Mood for Love, Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon launched the new century by disproving the old myth that subtitled films could not succeed at the multiplex.  Chinese Films in Focus II updates and expands its predecessor: Chinese Films in Focus: 25 New Takes with fourteen new essays, providing, in total, 35 in-depth and original readings of an individual Chinese film.  Films from Mainland China, Taiwan, Hong Kong and other parts of the diaspora are all represented, and the historical coverage ranges from the 1930s to the present.

Leading international experts including Rey Chow, Yingjin Zhang, Berenice Reynaud, Kam Louie and Mary Farquhar join younger scholars to address significant and popular films  such as Hero, Farewell My Concubine, Chungking Express, Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon, Blind Shaft, Suzhou River and many more.  This volume will be essential reading for students and fans of Chinese cinema.
