BIRTHDAY CELEBRASIAN! Wayne Wang

January 13th, 2011 | 2 comments | Posted by Diana




Happy birthday to filmmaker Wayne Wang, who turned 62 yesterday!

As you probably know, Wang is the director responsible for bringing The Joy Luck Club to the silver screen–a triumphant Hollywood breakthrough for Asian female actresses (and shining moment for my boyfriend Russell Wong)–as well as critical favorites like Chan Is Missing and Dim Sum: A Little Bit Of Heart.

We can’t wait to see more films–like his upcoming Chinatown doc–from Wang! But, like, more Tamlyn and less JLo, y’know?

    I know I am in the minority of many East Asian women, but I like THE JOY LUCK CLUB, both film and movie. I’m older, so the book spoke to me as a young woman who had no other sources of art to express what I knew to be true, and untrue of Chinese mothers and daughters. For all its faults TJLC was a showcase of Asian American female talent, so bravo for that.

    Sheng Ri Kwai Le, Wayne Wang. I was one of a handful of fans of your quirky “Slamdance” . I’d also recommend “Eat a Bowl of Tea” starring Russell Wong and Wang Tai tai, Cora Miao. And I believe I get what you’re trying to say in your uneven and complex “Chinese Box”.
