  • 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.

This isn't an Asian-American family but I'm guessing, since the title is "Asian Family" and 'Parasite' is included, that you've decided against narrowing it to Asian-American families? If so...

FYC:
Shoplifters (although they're -- I don't want to spoil it for anyone but Stephen, I'm guessing that you've seen the film so I'm guessing you know what I'm thinking with the "although?")

I like this poll and, without Shoplifters, I'd vote for either 'The Farewell' or 'Parasite.'

I'll add Shopflifters to the lot. And I guess it needs a bit more stewing in the slow cooker. But at a certain point, it's moved beyond Face-Off territory.

Yeah, I was thinking that it could (maybe) easily slip over five. If you want to keep it as a Face-Off but want to add another particular film, these five are all over a 7.0 IMDb score except 'Crazy Rich Asians.' Likewise, all of these five have been nominated for an Oscar or Golden Globe except 'The Joy Luck Club,' which is also the only one not made in the 20th century. 

However it turns out, I bet it'll be a good one. I love the idea and, as it is now, it's an amazingly solid list of films: all five are well above the Metacritic "recommended" score of 61, with four (all but 'Crazy Rich Asians) being over the "superior/best" score of 80 and three of the five are above an IMDb score of 7.5. I bet it's rare that a theme yields those kind of results.

Hi Stephen, where do you think this one is now? Do you think it's marinated and simmered long enough?

Please update "four" to "five" in the text if you're sticking with five options.
