Editorial Reviews

West 32nd takes the cameras inside New York's gritty Korean underworld. After hustling his way onto a homicide case, attorney John Kim (John Cho, this summer's blockbuster Star Trek, Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle, Better Luck Tomorrow) finds himself thrust into a sordid world of hard realities and moral compromises after he is taken under the wing of a ruthless Korean gangster who knows no limits.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is nothing like "The Motel" October 24, 2009
By C. Kim
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I loved Michael Kang's "The Motel" so when I found out he was making a Korean-American gangster film set in NYC I had to see it (went to both the Tribeca and Pusan Film Festivals). The darker, film-noir style of this movie is nothing like the cute and touching The Motel. The main actors, John Cho, Grace Park, Jun-Seong Kim and Jane Kim gave great performances, and Lanny Joon was hysterical as the 2nd-in-command gang leader (he's been on TV shows like Numb3rs, CSI:Las Vegas, and ep 7 of Lost: The Complete Fourth Season).

I learned at the Film Festivals that this movie was co-written by Edmund Lee when he was at "The Village Voice." You can tell as there are details in the movie that hint at investigative journalism.

It was refreshing to see John Cho and Grace Park in roles outside of what they might be best known for, namely: "Sulu" in the recent Star Trek, "Harold" in Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle (Unrated Extended Edition), and "Sharon Valerii" in Battlestar Galactica: The Plan. For those of you who follow Korean dramas, Jung Joon-Ho (Last Scandal) makes a cameo appearance. I'd never seen him before but I can see why he's a popular star in Korea as he was very charismatic.

Some parts of the movie were poignant for me as a second generation son of parents from Korea.

5.0 out of 5 stars Saw it 3 times September 25, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I saw this three times when it was on the festival circuit. Definitely recommend!

John Cho was great. So were some of the breakout actors like Lanny Joon.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating insight March 4, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
West 32nd
I got to know about W32nd by a friend from New York.
The movie gives a fascinating insight about Koreans in New York, different from the usual known hard working and studying Koreans with the 'good' behaviour, or at least not disturbing society. Some of the scenes are recognizable and funny.
The American-Korean production is interesting too and I look forward to Michael Kang's next movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Asian American Film July 24, 2010
Format:DVD
Asian American indie films are so hit-or-miss . . . I support and appreciate them in theory, but can rarely find one that I would watch more than once outside of an ethnic studies class I would teach. I thoroughly enjoyed West 32nd . . . even the soundtrack is a winner. Jun-Seong Kim is gorgeous and steals the show in my opinion. What a treat to see the spectrum of KA experiences played out on screen . . . who is being manipulated and who is manipulating? What insecurities and aspirations direct the life choices of these three city dwellers who despite sharing an ethnic identity, are from vastly different worlds . . . utilizing what and who they can to survive and thrive.
