As Spike Lee’s perplexing adaptation of Park Chan-wook’s Oldboy hits U.S. theaters, we ponder the ongoing influence of Asian cinema on Hollywood, and how the expanding Asian market is influencing American film in other ways. [Read more…]

"…it’s becoming more and more interesting playing find-the-kowtow-moment in big American films, looking for scenes and moments and dialogue inserted entirely to ingratiate an American film with one specific market. And I’m simultaneously dubious about and entertained by the way American and Asian film culture is blending, with Chinese pictures looking more and more like Hollywood studio releases, while American pictures are continuing to cherry-pick elements from Asian culture for exotica (like Japanese-style ghosts) and explosive style. As with so many other cultural elements, it seems like the rise of modern mass communications and increasingly permeable markets is moving us all very slowly in the direction of a monoculture."

i’m so tired of seeing ppl talk about shit they clearly do not care about on any genuine level, especially in this case, when you have three white ppl who obviously see the very films and directors they ‘discuss’ as cultural capital. newsflash: namedropping is not the same as actually knowing shit nor some shortcut to facilitating any sort of meaningful discussion
also how can you talk about current trends in us horror without even once mentioning james wan?!
and if you’re gonna continuously characterize any of the respective east asian trends & developments in us cinema as ‘invasions,’ you better fucking talk about us imperialism and its effects in those specific countries such as THEIR EFFECTS ON CINEMA

Such as the fact that the American government basically told us to get rid of, or dminish screen quotas for Korean films and inundated us with Hollywood shit that no one even watches in the U.S like Jack the Giant Killer.
Shall we also mention the trend of the titles of Hollywood films not being translated into their counterparts but just written in anglicized Korean? So that they sound more “English”-like?
