Hollywood Chinese is both a history of the Chinese presence in American films and a meditation on the difficulties Chinese Americans have had in being seen as individuals and in putting the reality of their experience on screen.

The film is primarily a more astute-than-average combination of vintage footage and talking heads.

A welcome entry in the constituency-cinema canon, Hollywood Chinese surveys a century‚(TM)s worth of Chinese-American actors and filmmakers, visionaries and dragon ladies, kung fu excellence and Fu Manchu insult, Oscar winners and clich√ (C) mongers.

Just in time for China's (sometimes warranted) resurgence in the press as global bogeyman, Arthur Dong's survey of Chinese-Americans' prickly relationship with Hollywood is a fascinating exploration of the intricacies of cultural assimilation.

Half of the running time is devoted to clips both expected (The Good Earth) and refreshing (Marion Wong's undiscovered The Curse of Quon Gwon), the other to the musings of politely enraged talking heads.
