  • hopeful that The Farewell gets some box office recognition from under the dark shadow of Lion King.

Maybe you should refer to the films as Asian-American, either in the title or the question, just to distinguish them from Kore-eda films and so on.

Would this be kosher with the IMDb Title Stylist Gang?

Are there any other films that could qualify for this moderately niche list? I feel I'm missing something.

Maybe it would be fun to expand the poll to include Asian films like Parasite.

I'm game for that addition.

Though, I have to change the title and remove the American part of the equation.

If you've been paying attention, the poll was about movies about Asian-American families. There is a very limited number of those types of films. Was keeping this as simple as Face-Off possible.

Not every poll needs a maximum of 35 films.

Do you have any legitimate nominations you'd think should be added to this list? Please keep in mind, I'm keeping this poll based on critically acclaimed family dramas (and nonfantasy/science-fiction and definitely Razzie worthy films are excluded).

I'm afraid I might have opened Pandora's box by allowing Parasite (but I'm willing to expand it ... beyond Face-Off if the crop of upcoming suggestions are palatable).

I guess movies like Eat, Drink, Man, Woman might be added as well.
