Does Hollywood Know What Asians Want?

Kam Raslan | Na'a Murad | Shamaine Othman

Does

This week on A Bit Of Culture, our trio mull over the political correctness of Crazy Rich Asians. First, the issue of Hollywood's instinct on what Asian audiences want, we even question Hollywood’s role in having to satisfy Asian’s wishes entirely, over Asian cinema. We then discuss the anatomy of a joke, as standup comedian Shamaine Othman goes over essential rules in constructing an effective joke, and why many of these archetypal components make us laugh. We end the episode with a review of colourblind casting, a practice by which film producers don’t consider an actor’s race when assigning them a role, and whether Malaysian cinema should adopt that mentality.
