Dilley not only provides an in-depth overview of Ang Lee's contribution to film, but also gives crucial contextualization for East-West film studies and theoretical approaches, as well as providing careful study of significant themes in Lee's personal life which molded him as a film director. This is an enormous amount of territory to cover. Dilley does it well with scholarly rigor in a tone of exploration and wonder. -- Barbara Kline, Seattle Pacific University The Cinema of Ang Lee is the most comprehensive study of Ang Lee and all the films directed by him to date. It tells the extraordinary story of a Taiwan-born Chinese director within the global contexts of diaspora, transnationalism, Chinese-language cinema, American cinema, and world cinema. The book is full of interesting details, and is written in a lucid, accessible style that will be appreciated by readers and moviegoers interested in this director. -- Sheldon Lu, University of California at Davis Writing about film is no easy task and writing about great film even harder. Ang Lee's films include not only three Academy Award winners, The Life of Pi, Brokeback Mountain, and Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, but also less familiar masterpieces like Lust|Caution, Ride with the Devil, The Ice Storm, and Eat Drink Man Woman. Whitney Dilley's study of Ang Lee's art is written with remarkable clarity, insight, and compassion. It is a model of fine film literature. -- Jerome Silbergeld, Princeton University Recommended.
