I don’t know if we will be able to show everything.

I remember a couple of scenes I would look over at what was going on in the scene and I would be like, ‘What the eff? What are we doing? How is this legal? It’s grounded and real, too; it’s not like torture or gore for no reason,” he said. “It’s literally, that is what would happen and we are trying to show it. It would not work on network television, let me tell you that.

"

— Steven Yuen also commented on the premiere, saying that that some of the scenes filmed in the train car were so intense, he thinks they’ll be heavily edited by the time we get to see them: (via iamrickgrimesmissinghand)

What are some of your favorite Asian films or anime?

I was raised on Akira Kurosawa films such as Seven Samurai and Kagemusha. I loved Zatoichi, the blind swordsman. Bruce Lee’s films and writings are works I continue to return even now. Asian cinema and the portrayal of Asians in American media have definitely had a major impact on my life. As a kid in the States, I only ever saw Asian people portrayed positively in a very violent way. Otherwise, it was bucked tooth caricatures. As a teenager, I found artists like Takashi Murakami, Hayao Miyazaki or Rei Kawakubo who are involved with many disciplines of art. Their work and the fact that they transcended from Japan to the West’s consciousness made me feel, as an Asian American, that there was a place in culture for someone like me. What I saw in the media was very important in constructing a sense of identity because I did not have many Asian peers growing up in central Pennsylvania. My experiences made me recognize the important role the arts can play in disenfranchising or empowering a person.
