Summary

Summary

Asian Pop Cinema is the first full-colour guide to the wide-ranging films of Japan, Korea, China, Taiwan, the Philippines, Hong Kong, Southeast Asia, and India, served up with dozens of spectacular photographs, film stills, and movie posters. Presenting the major films, the people behind them, the key elements of each genre, and interviews with John Woo and others, Lee Server brings a unique breadth of knowledge to every page. From subversive camp to adrenalized crime thrillers, Asian Pop Cinema is a great read and exciting resource for both seasoned and uninitiated viewers.
