Summary
Breathtaking swordplay and nostalgic love, Peking opera and Chow Yun-Fat's cult followers--these are some of the elements of the vivid and diverse urban imagination that find form and expression in the thriving Hong Kong cinema. All receive their due in At Full Speed, a volume that captures the remarkable range and energy of a cinema that borrows, invents, and reinvents across the boundaries of time, culture, and conventions
