Andrew Lau and Alan Mak's Infernal Affairs - The Trilogy

Gina Marchetti


Infernal Affairs has received journalistic, popular and corporate notice but little vigorous critical attention. This book explores the way this example of Hong Kong's cinematic eclecticism has crossed borders as a story, a commercial product and a work of art; and has had an undeniable impact on current Hong Kong cinema. Moreover the author uses this film to highlight the way Hong Kong cinema continues to be inextricably intertwined with global film culture and the transnational movie market.

Keywords: Infernal Affairs, Hong Kong, film, Hong Kong cinema, global film culture, transnational movie market
