2) must we assume that these films reflect/stage the dominant ideologies within nations at given times in history? (7), and (3) despite compelling reasons to think otherwise, why do we tend to assume that the term ‘national cinema’ implies coherence, especially coherence as it relates to reception and production within ‘legal borders’ (Vitali and Willemen 17).

A passage from the similarly themed novel Buddha’s Eyes by Donald Moore (2002) describes the glowing eyes as fiery red rubies that instil fear in Yang, the protagonist of the novel: ‘at the far end of the rotunda, in an alcove, Buddha sat on a stone pedestal, his eyes glowing as he looked directly at Yang. Yang was frozen in place. At any moment, he expected to hear Buddha’s voice damning him for violating a sacred place’ (Moore 6). The powerful image of Buddha’s eyes is a narrative ploy that is meant to instil fear in those who might be thinking of rebelling and, in turn, minimise the chances of an uprising.
