Happy #CrazyRichAsians opening day! To celebrate this historic occasion, I want to uplift some of the brilliant pieces written by Asian American journalists about this gorgeous and important film.
PROLOGUE: @adatseng writing for the @washingtonpost about the history of Asian American cinema leading up to #CrazyRichAsians…
.@shirklesxp was the first one to give the world a glimpse of the movie we would all come to know and love…
I'll be very non-Asian here and self-promote @Beccamford's and my @THR cover story on #CrazyRichAsians' high-rolling journey from page to screen, and its high-stakes significance in the cultural canon…
.@jenyamato and the @latimes team made an eye-popping, eye-watering multimedia package profiling 14 (14!! Talk about an Asian work ethic!) #CrazyRichAsians cast members and creatives sharing their own paths to this moment.…
.@DinoRay's in-depth emotional interview with @jonmchu that found new ways to make me cry over #CrazyRichAsians…
.@inkookang's culturally incisive #CrazyRichAsians film review that understands how this movie illuminates Asian American identity in a way that is seldom if ever explored by Hollywood…
Ready to 😭 over personal essays from professional Asian American journalists seeing themselves at work for the first time? Start with @imontheradio finding herself in both the SE Asian and American depictions in #CrazyRichAsians…
.@katchow acknowledging the anxiety (literally every Asian American's review of #CrazyRichAsians starts with "I walked in with dread") of #repsweats (tm @jennyyangtv…
@JiayangFan walks in to #CrazyRichAsians with anxiety, walks out a believer…
.@RachelChang, who once was told TO HER FACE that the only reason she was employed was because her manager got a "diversity hiring bonus." Anyway, she's a Chinese American Rachel who related to #CrazyRichAsians…
Like any Asian, I have a hard time accepting that @JustinCChang's #CrazyRichAsians review for the @latimes is not 💯, but it's still worth your read…
But what about the CRAFT??? Here's @stephmchan writing for @latimes about #CrazyRichAsians' glorious, glorious fashion…
And our godfather @originalspin on #CrazyRichAsians' masterful, thoughtful use of music (maybe read this after you see the movie, for maximum impact)…
What's next? If #CrazyRichAsians opened your round eyes to the wealth of talent out there, revisit the cast in some of their previous hits, rounded up by @karenyhan for the @nytimes…
Whew! Okay, there are a lot more of us out there than I thought, so please consider this only a partial list. But please remember to set down your reading occasionally and go to the movies!
YESSS delighted to add a contribution from one of my favorite young Asian American writers, @cashleelee, on CRAFT: Nelson Coates' creative, cost-effective production design on #CrazyRichAsians !…
