Ratings & Reviews

  1. Mugino's rating of the film White on Rice

    Choosing an idiot man-child as the lead is certainly as baffling as it is irritating. But the one saving grace is that this isn't another tedious, angst-ridden cliche about "the Asian American identity". The characters simply happen to be Asian, which is completely secondary to the family dynamics. How nice that they can just BE and not culturally dissected.

  2. Byron Brubaker's rating of the film White on Rice

    A kind of 40 year old virgin with a mostly Japanese cast. All the best bits were in the trailer. The hour and a half run time adds nothing but awkwardness. This is an example of a quirky independent flick going too far over the edge.
