Product Details

Praise

“In these luminously powerful essays on Chinese cinema, women’s literature, and contemporary popular culture, Dai Jinhua achieves a new historiography. She shows us how to rethink the great themes of nationalism, colonialism, consumerist capitalism, and modernity itself. Moving, inspiring, and absorbing from beginning to end, Cinema and Desire is a landmark work by a major cultural critic”—Meaghan Morris, Lingen University, Hong Kong

“The most lucid, complex and brilliant analysis of Fifth Generation film (indeed of the entire ‘generations’ phenomenon in the People’s Republic of China) that I have ever seen. Dai Jinhua manages at the same time to connect with international currents in psychoanalytic feminist film criticism and to forward a grounded,‘new Marxist’ Chinese school of thinking.”—Ella Shohat, City University of New York
