Wicked Cities: Cyberculture and the reimagining of identity in the `non-Western' metropolis

Abstract : Hong Kong consumers of popular culture have recently been obsessed with cyberpunk culture. One film exploiting the techniques and passions of cyberculture is Wicked City or Yaoshou dushi (1992) directed by Peter Mak (Mak Tai Kit) and produced by Tsui Hark. It is discussed here as exceptional in its re-deployment of the cultural imaginaries of Hollywood movies, Japanese comics, and Hong Kong's own ideology. Issues of colonialism, the alienatory power of the nation-state, hybridity, androgyny, time and history and, for Hong Kong, the rare critique of the capitalism, are all addressed in this film and in our discussion of the text and its context.
