Details

This is the first book-length study of Hong Kong cult director Wong Kar-wai, providing an overview of his career and in-depth analyses of his first eight feature films (as well as his commercials for the likes of Motorola , BMW and Lacoste and music video for DJ Shadow).

The book probes into Wong's cinematic and literary influences, from Martin Scorsese to Alfred Hitchcock, from Manuel Puig to Haruki Murakami, and examines how Wong transcends them all. Indeed, the theme of the book is Wong as a transcendent filmmaker, a director who transcends the limitations of his native Hong Kong cinema and who easily transcends borders to reach a global audience.

Wong's position as the star of the Hong Kong-global nexus and postmodern exemplar of world cinema is reaffirmed in a comprehensive, well-researched and thoroughly accessible tome, part of the BFI's World Directors series.
