As for our third commentary, please discuss the ways the three major films e-screened over Weeks 7-9 deal with Japanese/Chinese/American (Hollywood) influences, in terms of film genres (state or cold war propaganda, romance comedy, gangster film, noir and detective, and so on), narrative technique, identity formation and political agency, global/local dialectics, minority rights, or ecology and sustainability.
