  1. letters never sent's rating of the film The World of Suzie Wong

    One one hand it's sweet, yet so many parts are terribly stereotypical, if not for Nancy Kwan, and the Hong Kong setting, I'd rate it much lower. The stars go to those two that made this worth it

  2. TheCentralRuhr's rating of the film The World of Suzie Wong

    Gorgeous production design but perhaps that's part of the problem. One's mileage may vary depending on where they place the responsibility between the director and audience in deconstructing the artifice around orientalism.

  3. João Eça's rating of the film The World of Suzie Wong

    Ravishingly beautiful movie about an interracial love story between an american painter and a chinese prostitute, surprising not only about its straightforward depiction of the relation but also because of its daring moral statements. It's a shame that the studio forced the moralist ending (the death of the prostitute's baby) because the movie could be a masterpiece. Richard Quine is a much forgotten director indeed.

  4. Christopher M. Jones's rating of the film The World of Suzie Wong

    You know that uncle you have who has his heart in the right place and is even kind of fun to be around but occasionally he'll just be like "You know I don't care if they eat dogs, I've always found the Orientals to be an exceptionally well-mannered race" and you're just like "Holy SHIT uncle Dan"? "The World of Suzie Wong" is the cinematic equivalent of that uncle.

  5. Blue K, Custodian of the Cinema's rating of the film The World of Suzie Wong

    Yes, Asian women love to be beaten and need a proper Western gentleman to teach them better. What a fucking joke of a movie.
