Sample text

Coming full circle, Chris Berry published Chinese Films in Focus (2003), representing twentyfive individual films from mainland China, Taiwan, and Hong Kong, without differentiating them into categories or separate sections in the table of contents. 7 As Lee’s position in world cinema has expanded, so has the academic view of what films fall under the categorization of “Chinese” cinema. In the past two decades, cinema and popular media produced in China, Hong Kong, and Taiwan has been ang lee as director 27 “reimagined” (to use the terminology of Rey Chow, 2000).

In evaluating his films, one must therefore consider the role of meanings, symbols, cultural frames, and cognitive schema in the theorizations of social process and institution; he deals with sweeping cultural and social themes such as tradition, the sacred, feminism, and cultural production.

For that reason, he has been excluded from many major discussions on Chinese film directors, especially those that focus on the distinct styles of directors from mainland China.

You don’t create it, you initiate it because you get a call. It’s not about dictatorship. 68 Ang Lee’s films are noted for their widely divergent genres and unpredictable subject matter. However, Lee’s films share a single thread: his own unique vision; his own dreams. While his films may appear dissimilar to viewers, they are all simply a part of Lee’s own imaginative world, a world that he inhabits. Lee lives inside his films, where they are all part of the same world—his own. 20 introduction t wo Ang Lee as Director: His Position in Asian and World Cinema ang lee is a transcendent filmmaker who has not only brought worldwide attention and wider reception to Chinese cinema, but he has also gone beyond his Chinese roots to become a postmodern and post-boundaried artist who moves as easily in Western genres as he does in Chinese.
