Thanks to the recent successes of directors and actors
like John Woo, Jackie Chan, and Chow Yun-fat, the cinema of Hong Kong
is increasingly popular worldwide, and there is much more to this diverse
film culture than most Western audiences realize. Beyond martial arts
and comedy, Hong Kong films are a celebration of the grand diversity
and pageantry of movie-making-covering action, comedy, horror, eroticism,
mythology, historical drama, modern romances, and experimental films.
Information on 1,100 films produced in British Hong Kong from 1977 to
1997 is included here.
The films are arranged alphabetically, and each entry includes complete
production information, a rating, a synopsis, and an analysis. The introductory
matter provides background information and explains the inclusion criteria
for the book. There is a foreword by Tim Lucas. An index allows for
easy reference, and a bibliography and video resource guide are also
included. This comprehensive guide is appropriate both for those well-versed
in this amazing and diverse national cinema, and those newly drawn to
its many charms.
