Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon : A Diasporic Reading

From: Cinema Journal
43, Number 4, Summer 2004
pp. 18-42 | 10.1353/cj.2004.0035


This article proposes that Ang Lee's Chinese-language martial arts film, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, be seen as a work of diasporic cinema. The essay explores how the film's material production and its aesthetic form have been shaped by Lee's ties to his Chinese homeland, to other members of the Chinese diaspora, and to the Hollywood films of his American hostland.
