The House Subcommittee saw two witnesses, Dr. Anita Chandra, a Behavioral Scientist with the RAND Corporation, and Dr. Leonard Wong, a Research Professor with Strategic Studies Institute, U.S. Army War College.

When asked by chairwomen Susan Davis what she thought should be done to assist military families, Dr. Chandra stated “There has been a lot more attention on younger children, younger than 12. There are a lot of development and support programs for them.

    Wong Kar Wai is probably the most innovative and avant-garde director to come out of Hong Kong. As part of the second New Wave of Hong Kong cinema, Wai moved far away from the traditional, Jackie Chan and Shaw Brothers style of films, which focused on action, and explored more substantial themes, icnluding human psyche, politics and the social conditions in Hong Kong. His aesthetics are quite similar with Jean-Luc Godard and the French Wave, in general, particularly because he also took apart…

    “Movement, change and flux are the only constants in the city.” A delightfully poignant movie revolving around urban alienation of its citizens living in Hong Kong, it is easy for its audience to get absorbed in the flurry of images created by Christopher Doyle’s shaky handheld cameras, William Chang’s fast-paced editing, and Wong Kar Wai’s signature ‘smudge-motion’ techniques in the film Chungking Express.
