Donald Richie (1972: 93) states that Japanese critics “decided” that Rashomon’s success was due to its “exoticness” and that it was this that “foreigners” liked 26 Japanese Cinema Goes Global to see in Japanese films, though in his analysis he implies that mere reference to “exoticism” is not a satisfactory explanation. Evaluating the artistic merits of Rashomon is not my goal here. Rather, the points I want to make are: firstly, the success of Rashomon not only made Japanese filmmakers/producers very self-conscious about the Western gaze, but also made them increasingly aware of their standing among neighbouring Asian countries.
This is especially the case with some of the Korean-Japanese filmmakers I will discuss later. Therefore, unlike Resistance Cosmopolitans, Project Cosmopolitans are not necessarily antagonistic to existing national systems in obvious ways. Project Cosmopolitans are reflexive actors who actively work to interact and create their own social conditions, which in turn shape their agency through “unintended consequences” (Beck 2002). Nevertheless, contrary to what Giddens assumed and as Castells indicated, the development of Project Identity as an agent of social change is far from automatic, and the likelihood of Project Cosmopolitanism 22 Japanese Cinema Goes Global actually developing in any particular society is not guaranteed.
According to Castells, Project Identity can be developed out of either Legitimizing or Resistance Identity, but at the present conjuncture it is more likely to develop out of Resistance Identity. For instance, new Project Identity can be formed “when feminism moves out of the trenches of resistance of women’s identity and women’s rights, to challenge patriarchalism, thus the patriarchal family, and thus the entire structure of production, reproduction, sexuality, and personality on which societies have been historically based” (2004: 8).
