John Woo’s The Killer

Kenneth E. Hall


Has the creative period of the New Hong Kong Cinema now come to an end? However this question is answered, there is a need to evaluate the achievements of Hong Kong Cinema. This book distinguishes itself from the other books on the subject by focusing in-depth on individual Hong Kong films, which together make the New Hong Kong Cinema. Though underappreciated in contemporary film criticism, Bullet in the Head is a landmark in John Woo's career as a film director.

Keywords: New Hong Kong Cinema, Hong Kong films, Bullet in the Head, John Woo
