But it requires one to be forgiving of the ethnic stereotypes of the period, and the practice of casting white actors in Asian roles. Although from my vague memory of the film, I think it did a lot better with the ethnic issues than a lot of movies of the period, since Lao put on the standard Oriental stereotype as an act for the tourists, rather than actually being that way. So it was somewhat deconstructing that stereotype, despite the casting.
