The Slanted Screen
Filmmaker Jeff Adachi turns his critical lens on Hollywood in order to highlight the dangerous but seldom explored reality of cinematic prejudice. With fifty film clips spanning a century on the silver screen, Adachi chronicles the experiences of Asian men in American cinema. From ethnic stereotypes to the limited roles available to talented Asian actors, this look at a highly visible form of racism reveals just how much damage can be done by the image making machine in Hollywood.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Entertaining, its concerns are current and it may empower viewers in its target community."
‑ Michael Ordoņa, Los Angeles Times
"Provides a serviceable if uninspired companion piece to The Celluloid Closet and other overviews of minority (mis-)representation."
‑ Dennis Harvey, Variety
"Too sloppy to make any genuine impact."
‑ Phil Hall, Film Threat
