So like always I’m a couple years late watching these movies. Part of it’s because I’m just always a little late on everything, and the other part is because I’m in Korea and if it’s on cable, then it’s bound to be purposefully released late. Anyway, these are usually pretty good movies (maybe not academy award winners) but also often under-appreciated at the box office.
Tonight’s fare is Shanghai Kiss. And all through this movie I’m smacking my forehead saying, “yes! yes! omg…”
Watch this movie. This is what it’s like to move to another country, developed far beyond one’s wildest imagination, looking like everyone else, being a foreigner, unable to speak the language, and grappling with questions like, “what is love?” and “what is family?” and “what am I?”
Me. Trying to get home…
