Tony Daniel Reviews ‘Crazy Rich Asians’ Movie and Book at ‘The Federalist’

federalist4siteIn his review here, Tony Daniel calls Crazy Rich Asians a fun American movie. He notes, tongue-in-cheek, that the cast is kind of like a Harvard freshman class in reverse (more on Harvard’s racist admittance policy here). He concludes that the film establishes no significant milestones whatsoever — other than being a much-needed island of semi-sophisticated entertainment for an adult audience in a sea of adolescent power fantasies and kitsch. But that is enough these days to make it worth seeing. Read the review here.
