This book presents the nature and significance of "Ashes of Time," and the reasons for its being regarded as a landmark in Hong Kong cinema.

Reader's Thoughts

Jamie

A scholarly study of the movie that spends more time trying to shove it into academic categories than it does seriously digging into the plot or the cinematic technique--though I do recommend the first couple of chapters for its summaries sorting out the various narrative threads. It could have also used a solid edit to cut down on repetitious phrases and dumb mistakes.
