News & Interviews for Ethan Mao
Critic Reviews for Ethan Mao
Messy admixtures of drama and mockery crucially undermine pic's serious message.
It builds tension gradually but surely to an exceptionally strong payoff.
Nobody onscreen seems to realize that this deadeningly self-serious treatment of family dysfunction is so overwrought that it becomes a spot-on satire of low-budget ineptitude.
Overly ambitious in its themes and crude in its execution.
Awkward dialogue, amateurist acting and uninspired direction.
Audience Reviews for Ethan Mao
I was reading the various "reviews" here on Flixter for this movie. It reminded me that each review (including the "plot" summary) should be titled "in my opinion". So, in my opinion, this is a movie worth seeing. It's about a lot more than being gay. No special effects or that stuff, but a movie to watch and listen to and, maybe, even think about a bit.
Nice kick off for Jun Hee Lee. Could have been better acting and was somewhat over the top. I got the message. And Jerry Hernandez is such a sweetie.
