I liked this movie as it turned out to be a more profound and insightful film than I thought.
I know where the character Richard is coming from. I grew up in the United States and spent nine years in Korea rediscovering my cultural identity and such. I've been sick of movies that only show the Asian-Americans who cannot (or shall I say will not) get down with their ethnicity.
I liked the Go master's comments that most expats in a foreign country know little to nothing about their host nation, even if they've lived there for years. And there are a lot of sleazy loser types from the West that do flock to Asia, something which the film duly pointed out.
