The universal tribulations of a dysfunctional Chinese family as experienced by a young woman in NYC
27 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I did not expect it to but "Face" affected me quite deeply. Generally, I find myself choosing genres with less dialog and less emotional content. I am more a hardcore action / adventure fan, loving Sci-Fi or the occasional documentary or foreign film. I gave face a chance when a friend recommended it to me as a true piece of New York and almost too gritty for Lifetime Net. The films' angle inside of real family dysfunction was a surprise peek in the mirror for me. Unlike the family in the film, I am a second generation American male of an average Russian Jewish family however, my story seems all too congruent with that of the lead character in "Face". My first viewing of this movie was really a lot much more than I knew I was signing on for but I felt a cathartic sense or acknowledgment by the third time. You wont find me in the drama section of the video store not because I'm too scared to get deep but because it is only a diamond that can bring it out in me.
