This movie had HUGE lines at Tribeca
10 May 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was one of SIX people who got in to see this movie the second night of Tribeca (waited 2 hours!), after unsuccessfully trying to get in the first night. After the ending credits, I was in shock because it was amazing to see an entire cast of "my peeps" up there. And the more I thought about the movie, the more I liked it - all the references to Korean-American life that were so familiar to me; the authenticity; the acting; the plot; the message; and the small bits of humor that were sooo Korean - "cola hana mashile?" I loved how John Cho portrayed the whitewashed Korean-American - so different from the still very Korean character played by Jun Kim. But their similarities were also striking

  • both were still ruled by their ambitions. The way I just described


this movie makes it seem like it's some kind of feel-good, cheesy Korean duh-ra-ma, but it's actually a pretty dark film with an intense feel. I really hope it comes out in wide release because I would really like to watch it again!
