Movie Info

Hollywood has a long tradition of cultural prejudice, particularly when it comes to depicting Asian peoples. For Asian actors, only limited roles are available, and they are often pigeonholed into depicting ethnic stereotypes. The struggle against these stereotypes, as well as the dilemmas facing actors forced to succumb to them, are explored through interviews with Asian actors and filmmakers and in a series of archival film clips covering a century of American film.

Critic Reviews for The Slanted Screen

All Critics (3) | Top Critics (2) | Fresh (2) | Rotten (1)

  • Entertaining, its concerns are current and it may empower viewers in its target community.

    October 12, 2006 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Provides a serviceable if uninspired companion piece to The Celluloid Closet and other overviews of minority (mis-)representation.

    October 12, 2006
  • Too sloppy to make any genuine impact.

Audience Reviews for The Slanted Screen

  • Dec 05, 2018
    There are several documentaries like this about racial stereotyping in Hollywood on the streaming service Kanopy. This documentary was released in 2006, the same year Mako died, whose screen interview time is fairly significant, In 2006 Bobby Lee of MadTV was perhaps the youngest up-and-coming talent interviewed. Filmmaker Jeff Adachi goes all the way back to the silent era to begin and I found the information about Japanese silent star Sessue Hayakawa fascinating. Again there is anger from these Asian men at the injustice of racism and stereotypes in the film industry, but many are working to make a change so there is hope for the future.
