Here's a Japanese review on Memoirs of a Geisha. The writer seems annoyed at what she calls the "kitschy oriental cliches"
Unfortunately, the whole thing reeks of a souvenir shop extravaganza, like they upended the shelves of Oriental Bazaar right onto the streets.
How about some cliches about Asian women? This story looks at the stereotypes that are perpetuated in the film. Hollywood loves a stereotype or two.
Has anyone seen this thing yet? Can you explain to me why the print ad shows a blue-eyed geisha?
