    ★★½

    It's a testament of the state of Hollywood Asian American representation to say that a 57 year old film "refreshing", as I did after watching this.

    The first major Hollywood film with an all Asian cast (aside from a brief scene with a white robber, and the African American Juanita Hall cast as Madame Liang) backed by Rodgers and Hammerstein. It is hard to fathom that this was released in 1961, the same year of the infamous Mickey Rooney yellowface…

    ★★★★½

    A serious film about grief and existentialism featuring a man covered in a bed sheet with holes cut into it for his eyes sounded like it would be a huge disaster. David Lowery delivered a truly epic film and wasn't afraid to use moments of unconventionally long silence to convey the tone and feeling of what it may be like experience loss of a loved one. The square aspect ratio throughout the film creates a feeling of claustrophobia. The subtle camera movements and how passage of time was conveyed was brilliant.
