Reviews
ReviewSource Variety
Review Examining Hollywood's checkered past and slowly improving present regarding the portrayal of Asian masculinity, "The Slanted Screen" provides a serviceable if uninspired companion piece to "The Celluloid Closet" and other overviews of minority (mis-)representation. Helming debut for San Francisco public defender Jeff Adachi (himself the subject of a fine docu, 2002's "Presumed Guilty") suggests he's had too much on his career plate to give this long-aborning pet project the attention it deserved. Nonetheless, once-over-lightly feature's vintage clips, celebrity interviews and short runtime make it viable for broadcast and classroom exposure.
