San Diego Asian Film Festival: Finishing the Game
Roger Fan as Bruce Lee... uh I mean Breeze Loo in Finishing the Game (IFC)
The Eighth Annual San Diego Asian Film Festival kicks off on Thursday October 11 with Justin Lin's Finishing the Game . Listen to my Film Chat preview of the festival with Dwane and Maureen, and read my interview with filmmaker Justin Lin. Lin will be in San Diego to present his new film on SDAFF's opening night.
Ever since the age of ten, Justin Lin had a love-hate relationship with Hong Kong action star Bruce Lee. As an Asian American, Lin loved having a strong, sexy movie hero that ethnically looked like him. But he hated the fact that people would expect him to do kung fu moves and yell like Bruce Lee just because he was Asian. Lin takes a humorous look at the legacy of this martial arts phenom in his new film Finishing the Game .
