    Bedroomdisco has my original German review.

    Lee Isaac Chung (director & screenplay) tells, partly based on his own experiences and those of his family, the story of a family who immigrated to the U.S. from Korea in 1973 in pursuit of the "American Dream“: the Yis.

Guaranteed to ruin any kind of good mood you might have started out with. The violence required to kill someone is…

    A more inconsequential look at rich people's failures of communication and first-world problems I cannot imagine. Yawn.
