Book Summary:
Book DescriptionA Better Tomorrow has always been hailed as a milestone in Hong Kong cinema. This book describes the different responses to the movie in Hong Kong and worldwide, which paved the way for the promotion of John Woo and Chow Yun-fat to their current prominence in Hollywood. Karen Fang tracks the connections between ying shung pian, or "hero movie," the term by which Woo's film became famous in Hong Kong, and the spectacle of violence emphasized in the term "heroic bloodshed," the category in which the film was known in the West.
