Good low-budget film, nothing too unexpected
Interestingly-titled low-budget film (with decent lead actors/actresses) about a Chinese-American guy (presumably in L.A.) who channels his racialized self-hatred into serial killing (of people of different races)...won't say *too much* more to give away the ending but doesn't delve very deeply into the underlying roots of his feelings (besides the obvious playground footage/memories of him being taunted).
Also develops a love interest (with a Chinese woman) in his office and has some interesting dynamics with his boss (who is Chinese-American and who hires pretty blondes to be his secretaries to make his firm look more "prestigious").
Wish the film had explored a little more how he gets away with his crimes (it's because he's Asian descent that no one ever suspects him, but I thought this could have been teased out with a little more nuance.)
Jason Tobin does a good job as the title character, he's able to convey a sense of constant self-discomfort but also drop the "mask" in certain situations when his character feels more at ease (not sure I really got what led him to "cross the line" and actually commit the murders however).
