Summary
  • Published simultaneously as Journal Of Homosexuality , volume 39, number 3/​4 (2000), this collection brings together experts in film-making and movie criticism to examine the aesthetics and politics of homosexuality in Asian films. From the subversive sadomasochism of Japan's "pink films" to the hard-boiled world of Hong Kong's gangster movies, Queer Asian Cinema analyzes and discusses attitudes toward homosexuality in the full spectrum of Asian film. In addition to studies of the representation of identified gay men, lesbians, and transgendered individuals, it reveals the hidden homoerotic subtext of otherwise conventional films. Queer Asian Cinema: Shadows in the Shade examines diverse aspects of Asian films, including: the political and psychological links between feudal and sadomasochist hierarchies; the inevitable punishment of homoerotic bonds in gangster films; the integration of the homosexual couple into the Confucian family structure in Korean films; the complexities of cross-gender casting; the differences between transvestism and cross-dressing; and the definition of male genitalia as obscene." - publisher.
