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.

From the Back Cover:



Chinese cinema continues to go from strength to strength. After art-house hits like Chen Kaige's Yellow Earth (1984) and Wong Kar-wai's In the Mood for Love (2000), the Oscar-winning success of Ang Lee's Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon (2000) disproved the old myth that subtitled films could not succeed at the multiplex. Chinese Films in Focus II updates and expands the original Chinese Films in Focus: 25 New Takes with fourteen brand new essays, to offer thirty-four fresh and insightful readings of key individual films. The new edition addresses films from mainland China, Taiwan, Hong Kong and other parts of the Chinese diaspora and the historical coverage ranges from the 1930s to the present. 

The essays, by leading authorities on Chinese cinema as well as up-and-coming scholars, are concise, accessible, rich, and on the cutting edge of current research. Each contributor outlines existing writing and presents an original perspective on the film, making this volume a rich resource for classroom use, scholarly research and general reading for anyone wanting to understand more about the historical development and rich variety of Chinese cinema.
