(W) Stefan Hammond, Mike Wilkins
How and why did films from Hong Kong become so popular? Hong Kong was a safe space for filmmakers seeking to profit from overseas Chinese markets and Chinatowns worldwide. By the 1980s, Hong Kong's Sammo Hung and Jackie Chan were famous throughout Asia, while filmmakers like Tsui Hark and Ringo Lam served up fantasy, horror and noir crime dramas for rabid cinemagoing hordes in the grindhouses of Kowloon. More Sex, Better Zen, Faster Bullets
is the most comprehensive encyclopedia of Hong Kong film available anywhere. Foreword by Jackie Chan, Preface by Michelle Yeoh.
