Most widely held works by Chow Yun-Fat
Crouching tiger, hidden dragon by Ang Lee( Visual )

7 editions published between 2000 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 61 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the semi-mythic China familiar from the swordplay martial arts genre, the theft of a treasured sword sets in motion a dizzying series of plots and counterplots involving warriors, thieves, aristocrats and assassins, with a pair of love stories at the film's center. Lee renews the wuxia genre simply by taking it seriously, hearkening back to King Hu's classic work that imbued the wuxia film with realism and a stylized but restrained visual style. As in Hu's films, the women are at the center of the story, in the fight scenes as well as the love scenes. The beauty and skill of Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon were perhaps best appreciated in the US, where it encouraged a serious reconsideration of the martial arts genre as a whole."

A better tomorrow : A better tomorrow II( )

1 edition published in 1986 in Chinese and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Popular Hong Kong genres have been proposed as "a crisis cinema" which allegorically attempts to come to terms with the handover to China in 1997 "by proposing certain strategies for survival and renewal". The "hero genre" initiated by this film is in the forefront of the "survival" cinema. Old and new traditions, genres and gender relationships, both Chinese and Western, are mixed into a hybrid. The gangster world "represents a traditional Chinese family corrupted by Western capitalist values". The theme of honour among gangsters and revenge for betrayal is shared with the martial arts sword play genre. Chinese knightly values of male sensitivity, gentleness and friendship, also drawn from the male bonding films of Hawks and Melville, co-exist with "excessive" choreographed violence. Motifs are drawn from both Buddhism and Catholicism
