Dying to Belong: Gangster Movies in Hollywood and Hong Kong by Martha P. Nochimson

A challenging exploration of the Hong Kong and Hollywood screen traditions of the gangster film. It Illuminates the way gangster films deal with the ambiguities of modern life, correcting the notion that this genre is inconsequential sensationalism; in addition to drawing on a range of American films, ranging from Public Enemy and Scarface to Gangs of New York, Goodfellas, and The Godfather, it explores a number of Hong Kong's 21st century gangster films, including Andrew Lau's Infernal Affairs and Johnnie To’s Election and Election 2, plus an exclusive interview with The Sopranos' creator, David Chase. 304 pp., illus. Paperback.
