Editorial Reviews

Review

This book is a highly intelligent and welcome guide to the movement as whole, and to some of its major participants.

(Bradley Winterton Taipei times)

A fine first chapter on Taiwan's film industry.

(June Teufel Dreyer Taipei Review)

a veritable jewel for those interested in Taiwanese film culture and its domestic and international evolution.

(Film-Philosophy)

A most welcome arrival on the scene for Asian Cinema as a whole, and is a book long over due.

(James Udden Film International 1900-01-00)

Extremely valuable.

(Yu-Jyuan Jian Canadian Journal of Film Studies 1900-01-00)

Taiwan Film Directors provides a much-needed, comprehensive history ofTaiwan cinema.

(Alexander C. Y. Huang The Journal of Asian Studies 1900-01-00)

Review

In this groundbreaking work, Davis and Yeh at once offer the reader something illuminating in theoretical engagement, erudite in historical delineation, and lucid in writing style. It is a must-read.

(Sheldon Lu, University of California, Davis, coeditor of Chinese-Language Film: Historiography, Poetics, Politics)

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Betzee on October 26, 2005
Format: Paperback
A wonderful book on a topic that had not been well covered, i.e., the history of New Taiwanese Cinema. Covered in detail are its origins as well as the motivations of different directors and how it all intertwined with Taiwan's political liberalization in the 1980s.
