Instead she found Steven, an American in his early ??60s with a severe case of ??yellow fever.??The documentary is told through the viewpoint of Lum who, as a Chinese American woman, was fascinated with Western men??s obsession with Asian women. It took over five years to make the film, as Lum followed her main character until he found a Chinese who wanted to marry him.Lum documents and narrates Steven and Sandy??s unstable, precarious relationship with skepticism as the couple attempts to build a marriage from scratch. Lum becomes their translator and marriage counselor, as the two have to use Google Translate to regularly communicate.Lum??s role in the project had changed dramatically. She began as a filmmaker with the goal of documenting a man??s obsession, but quickly found herself in the middle of an awkward, often humorous entanglement between two people who could barely understand each other.??Seeking Asian Female?? was one of my favorite films at this year??s South by Southwest Film Festival. It??s a fantastic, intimate look at how difficult and unpredictable romance and relationships can be. Even though the film focuses on Steven??s obsession with Asian women, the rough patches are no doubt familiar.They have trouble communicating ?? they??re separated by great distances ?? they struggle with living together ?? ??Seeking Asian Female?? is ultimately a documentary that captures what it??s like to be in love ?? to be in a relationship ?? and if two people can overcome their differences to make things work.??Seeking Asian Female?? is an intriguing, affecting work of documentary filmmaking. It engages the viewer and brings them into the living room of a couple who struggle to find their roles in a relationship forged from the fires obsession and desperation. I loved this film!

April N (fr) wrote: Very quickly adding to my "worst movies" list. I mean...really quickly. Have you ever seen movies so terrible that you keep praying for the bad guy to hurry up and kill everyone already? This is one of those.

I'd love this movie, the way it was directed and the atmosphere of a stage show, and the light that closely related to Rembrandt's work. Fresh me up!! What's more, after watching this movie, my feelings to "Nightwatching" is kind of changed. Anyway, I love it in many perspectives.

Raji K (au) wrote: Ryan Philippe and Sarah Michelle Gellar are two wealthy teenagers who have the world handed to them. With all their desires fulfilled they feel the only enjoyment they can find is in taking pleasure in the misery of others. Upon reading about a innocent girl (Reese Witherspoon) with values, a bet is made that Phillipe cannot deflower her as one of his many sexual conquests. Filled with jealousy, betrayal and lust Cruel Intentions was wickedly entertaining. Gellar particularly stood out as the sexy and manipulative person pulling many strings to get what she wanted. Critics will somewhat be down on the modern setting and the overall character of the film, but I found it to be quite original and daring.
Dustin D (ca) wrote: One of the greatest films in the Asian action/revenge genre. Lady Snowblood is action packed and stylish. Meiko Kaji carries the film with her quiet intensity. The backstory told in flashback is handled deftly in how it's told in more of an emotional sequence than a chronological one. The movie looks cheap at times, with landscapes clearly filmed on sound stages, but it's satisfying overall.

Jonathan D (nl) wrote: The director's cut is the superior version of the film.
Denise P (es) wrote: In an admirable attempt to deem Death itself the true antagonist of horror, unrealistic gore overshadows Final Destination's innovative concept, and is ultimately little more than a testament to how special effects have drastically replaced serious-minded creativity.
Michael R (de) wrote: Snow White and the Huntsmen has some intriguing visuals on display, but the whole film falls flat due to a poor script, poor acting, slow pace and lackluster action.
