Hong Kong cinema is more than martial arts and action. The second part of the course examines dramas of love, fantasy, journey, and self-discovery in Hong Kong cinema. Characters in these films seem to harbor a big dream: a “Hong Kong dream,” a “California dream,” or a “New York dream.” With the passage of time, they attempt to create new identities for themselves: be a different person, go to a new place, enter a relationship, or feel nostalgic for the past. Discuss the ways in which these characters change, pursue dreams, cherish old relationships, or search for new identities. Please feel free to consult relevant discussions in Planet Hong Kong by Professor David Bordwell and in the anthology A Companion to Hong Kong Cinema.
In your analysis, you should refer to at least three films by different directors. Please also briefly comment on the stylistic features of each of the directors.
At the end of this part of the paper, please indicate the source, manner, place, and time of viewing the films that you have selected for analysis and discussion.
Once again, like the midterm, both what you write and how you write are important. Avoid simple generalization. You need to refer to specific elements in the films. Coherence, organization, and elegance are important criteria for good writing.
