Abstract:

Asian cinema has never been more popular than it is today. In recent years, films such as Spirited Away, Hero, Kung Fu Hustle, and Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon have made surprising inroads into the American box office. Directors such as Jim Jarmusch, with Ghost Dog, and Quentin Tarantino, with Kill Bill Vols. I and II, have paid unabashed tribute to the Asian directors who have influenced them. On the world festival circuit, Asian films regularly win prestigious awards and are presented at film festivals from Sundance to Cannes. Asian Cinema: A Field Guide is the first book to provide a complete overview of the past, present, and future of the world's most dynamic and influential filmmaking region. Over 300 films from China, India, Japan, Korea, Iran, and Taiwan, as well as the emerging films of Kazakhstan, Tajikistan, Thailand, Malaysia, the Philippines, Vietnam, and Sri Lanka, are all included here. Illustrated with more than 100 film stills and photographs Asian cinema includes historical and cultural background information for each region's cinema. Also covers anime, Hong Kong action, Japanese horror, Bollywood, and much more!
