Victor of Aquitaine,
Terminal USA is the story of a Japanese-American family with more than their fair share of quirks. Ma (Sharon Omi) is stealing grandpa's morphine, Airhead sister (Jenny Woo) is having sex with the family lawyer, One brother (Jon Moritsugu) gets perfect grades but is hiding a secret gay love of skinheads, and the other brother (also Jon Moritsugu) is a wastoid druggie. The tension leads to an explosion of absurd violence as crazier and crazier things happen to the family. Written by
Seen at the microcinefest film festival in 1997, this film gave us much to chortle about. An anything but ordinary asian-american family, with a drug dealer screw-up for one son, a nerdy one with a fetish for skinheads in leather for another, a whore cheerleader for a daughter, an ailing grandfather and psychotic parents. Hilarity ensues. A an extremely fun ride that blows away commercial garbage with its sarcastic wit, charm and schizophrenic craziness.
