Description by OLDIES.com:

Thanks to the recent successes of directors and actors like John Woo, Jackie Chan, and Chow Yun-Fat, the cinema of Hong Kong is increasingly popular worldwide, and there is much more to this diverse film culture than most Western audiences realize. Beyond martial arts and comedy, Hong Kong films are a celebration of the grand diversity and pageantry of moviemaking - covering action, comedy, horror, eroticism, mythology, historical drama, modern romances, and experimental films. Information on 1,100 films produced in British Hong Kong from 1977 to 1997 is included here.

The films are arranged alphabetically, and each entry includes complete production information, a rating, a synopsis, and an analysis. The introductory matter provides background information and explains the inclusion criteria for the book. There is a foreword by Tim Lucas. An index, allows for easy reference, and a bibliography and video resource guide are also included. This comprehensive guide is appropriate both for those well-versed in this amazing and diverse national cinema, and those newly drawn to its many charms.
