Trajectories of identification: travel and global culture in the films of Wong Kar-wai

Allan Cameron

Allan Cameron recently completed a Ph.D. in Cinema Studies at the University of Melbourne. His doctoral research addressed modular narrative structures in contemporary international cinema. Articles based upon this research have been accepted for publication in The Velvet Light Trap (2006) and Quarterly Review of Film and Video (2007). Allan currently works as a research officer with the Australian Film, Television and Radio School.

There is also a rather odd Wong Kar-wai fansite at

where you can find forums, news, and pictures of Wong Kar-wai enthusiasts visiting iconic sites (including “the McDonald’s where Takeshi Kaneshiro ate!”).
