Wong Kar-wai is uniquely positioned among Chinese filmmakers probably because his vision of ‘Chineseness’ also enjoys a transnational audience. In this thesis, I examine five of his films and I further propose that, Wong has always, in his cinematic world, engaged in an on-going dialogue regarding past and identity in the age of Globalism with the people of Hong Kong, his transnational Western audience, and himself.
