It's a very impressive effort for a couple of first-time filmakers (I'm sure we'll see more from them). The visuals and the soundtrack are stunning for a low budget film (in fact, I like to play the movie as background distraction when I entertain). Beyond that, substantively it's a worthwhile exploration of the Korean and Chinese American social scene in New York. As a white guy, it gave me insight and understanding that I would never gleen for myself, even living in NYC and being open minded. I simply would not have the access.
Interviews are very good, but one seems to drift a bit too long midmovie. Through Helen's (especially) perspective one can understand the complicated layers and intersection of youth, Korean American culture in a big city, coming of age, and what seems like a condemnation to isolation, at least to some extent. Definitely worth watching.
The cinematography, editing, score are uniformly excellent. Sometimes, I couldn't believe that this was their first film. I hear they are currently in production on their next film, a feature film set in New York city. If Party is any indication, these guys have a good future ahead of them.
