Description - Wong Kar-Wai by Stephen Teo
This, the first book-length study of Hong Kong cult director Wong Kar-wai, provides an overview of his career and in-depth analyses of his seven feature films to date. The study also takes an intriguing look at Wong's commercials for the likes of Motorola, BMW, and Lacoste and at his music vide for DJ Shadow. Stephen Teo probes Wong's cinematic and literary influences - from Martin Scorsese and Alfred Hitchcock to Manuel Puig and Haruki Murakami - yet shows how Wong transcends them all. This comprehensive and thoroughly accessible study confirms Wong's position as the star of the Hong Kong-global nexus and as a postmodern exemplar of world cinema.
