Abstract

Reviews  317 and  aesthetic  styles.  In  its  choices,  the  volume  leaves  itself  open  to  the  charge  of  omitting  some  important  films   (or  important  directors)  and  is  thence  vulnerable  to  the  charge  of  selecting  certain  films   that  may  be  considered  minor. However,  as  a  second  edition  and  an  expanded  volume,  Chinese Films in Focus II  will  probably  press  forward  to  a  third  edition  with  more  new  films   added  and  perhaps  the  deletion  of  some  films   from  the  older  volume,  which  is  to  say  that  the  volume  as  a  whole  has  the  capacity  to  improve  and  change.  This   reflects   the  cap- acity  of  Chinese  films   to  advance  further  into  all  areas  of  film   studies  and  theory.  Th e  book,  therefore,  oer ff s   an  intriguing  concept  of  watching  Chinese  films   as  a  historical  phenomenon  in  progress,  as  it  were.  e Th   last  word  should  go  to  Berry,  who  advises  readers  to  look  at  particular  films   “as  a  site  to  investigate  theoretical  paradigms.”  “Given  that  so  much  film   theory  has  originated  in  the  study  of  Holly- wood  or  European  films,   Chinese  films   can  be  exciting  to  work
