-To promote Burning
which is slowly expanding, Steven Yeun spoke to Criterion about his Top 10 films.
1. (Tie) Good Morning and Tokyo Story by Yasujiro Ozu
"For me, Criterion was an entry point for Asian cinema, which was really awesome. I remember watching it for the first time and was like, man, so little happened but so much happened, and there’s such a wise grace. I hope we can see more films like this again."
2. Still Walking by Hirokazu Kore-eda
"As an Asian American person, you look for ways to justify and explain and understand why your family dynamic is the way it is, despite the fact that you’re in this country where everybody’s family dynamic seems very different. Then you get these glimpses and you’re like, oh, I can see the connection there."
3. Secret Sunshine Lee Chang-dong
"I was raised very Christian, and somehow this film echoes the things buzzing in the back of my head. It’s nice to have someone make you not feel crazy."
4. Chungking Express by Wong Kai Wai
"This movie allows you to just look at human beings as human beings for a second.Being raised in a very Christian, traditional Korean household, you’re kind of just seeing the surface and what you’re supposed to be at all times."
10. Hoop Dreams by Steve James
"You understand that everybody starts from somewhere and everybody’s got a journey and it doesn’t always work out the way you intended."
