Review quote

"This impressively edited collection of excellent essays on Chinese cinema offers a wide range of research coverage, from the cinematographic style of silent film in the early 1930s to the sixth generation products and the theoretical dilemma in the age of globalization. It represents the cutting edge of research on the fascinating issues of cinematic generational distinctions, global capitalism, cultural politics, and nationhood, and is sure to have a major impact on the study of Chinese cinema." --Jianmei Liu, University of Maryland
