Texte du rabat

Through an examination of representative films from the director's Hong Kong and American periods, Michael Bliss demonstrates that Woo should be regarded as a predominantly religious director, in whose films action is the vehicle by virtue of which a concern with spirituality is dramatized. Contains a chapter on Chinese opera tradition as relates to Woo's films, an exclusive interview with John Woo, and a complete filmography.



Résumé
While John Woo is regarded as a master action director, little attention has been paid to the manner in which Woo's films reflect the director's religious and ethical concerns. This work shows that Woo should be regarded as a predominantly religious director.
