Abstract

Reviews 133 introduction, she concentrates on two primary films in each chapter and teases out implications of various citations of China in Chinese and Western films, and her methodology proves effective. Overall, her book is theoretically informed, historically situated, geoculturally specific, and textually nuanced. Citing China is a welcome addition to the scholarship on world cinema and Chinese film as it provides a fascinating history of cross-cultural citations in transnational filmmaking. Scholars in Film Studies and cinephile readers will be equally rewarded by Marchetti’s rich knowledge, critical insight, and artistic sensibility throughout the book. Yingjin Zhang Yingjin Zhang is distinguished professor of Chinese and Comparative Literature at the University of California, San Diego, specializing in modern Chinese literature, cinema studies, and visual culture.
