Abstract

This article explores the problems of cinematic representation faced by Asian American men, arguing that Justin Lin’s Better Luck Tomorrow offers a way out of the impasse. The essay contends that the strategies of parody and metacinema allow Asian American film to join the mainstream while retaining an oppositional edge.
