Wong Kar-wai by Peter Brunette( Book )

8 editions published between 1997 and 2005 in English and held by 429 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Wong Kar-Wai traces this immensely exciting director's perennial themes of time, love, and loss, and examines the political implications of his films, especially concerning the handover of former British colony Hong Kong to the People's Republic of China. This book is the first in any language to cover all of Wong's work, from his first film, As Tears Go By, to his most recent, the still unreleased 2046. It also includes his best?known, highly honored films, Chungking Express, Happy Together, and above all, In the Mood for Love. Most importantly, Peter Brunette describes the ways in which Wong's supremely visual films attempt to create a new form of cinema by relying on stunning, suggestive visual images and audio tracks to tell their story, rather than on traditional notions of character, dialogue, and plot. The question of Wong Kar-wai's use of genre film techniques in art films is also explored in depth

Wong Kar-Wai by Stephen Teo( Book )

2 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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 all of his eight feature films to date including 2046 (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
