Preface: A generation ago, the debate around whether this film qualifies as "Asian American" would probably have been far fiercer but despite the fact that Danny Leiner is White, it's hard to argue that a film starring not one but two Asian American male leads deserves some place in the Asian American pantheon (at least ahead of Come See the Paradise!) This film actually gets better with each new watching even though you its juvenile sexism is just that - but this is a surprisingly subtle and rather subversive take on masculinity and race that isn't politically perfect by any means but certainly is more than "just" a stoner film with two Asian dudes at the helm.
