Question: Why would an American want Chinese cinema to be great again?
Answer: When in past decades Chinese cinema was great. It was really great. Really really great. Great, as delivering a completely unforgettable viewing experience. Now think back to the Shanghai film studios in the 1930s and Beijing Film Academy in the 1980s and you will guess that something else is at work in the world enthusiasm for films of these two periods of Chinese history — the Republican period and a shift in the Cultural Revolution landscape.
