Bravo John Wang ! Never has a Japanese American portrayed a Chinese American with the vigor,conviction,sensitivity & depth that Master Thesbian John Fukuda brought to "Wang".Mr. Fukudas rapier like wit has never been sharper,more surgical,indeed more comically lethal than in "Wang",TOUCHE JOHN WANG !!

........I laughed, I cried,I puked.. it was a zany feel good epic masterpiece, albeit a short zany feel good epic masterpiece... that one can puke to.Acting & Actors are like Bacon & Eggs for breakfast...The Chicken Contributes....aha but The Pig Commits ! Mr.Fukuda,you sir are a Pig.
