"Asian Schoolgirls" on Netflix

Like leftover kimchi,revenge is a dish best served cold, and after spending an hour and a half on this gem, you might be looking for some revenge of your own.

A fascinating study of the impact of the Uber economy on human trafficking, this film is about exploitation on several levels. But given the other choices on Netflix, aren't you really the one being exploited?

The lackluster cast is almost redeemed by a guy who kind of looks like Vin Diesel and by a guy who kind of looks like that guy who was In a bunch of other movies. And it's hard not to think of other movies when you reflect on how you might have otherwise spent your evening.

That said, this film delivers more than it promises, but after all, it only promises two things - Asians? Check. Schoolgirls? Well, okay, that's part of the movie magic which psychologists call "suspension of disbelief". But it does tick both boxes and four, oops, three times! Think of it as quadrophonic stereotypes. As they study, dance, and kill their way into your heart, Your disbelief will get a pretty good workout.

There are moments of decent soundtrack and cinematographic flair including a clever homage to Hitchcock, in what is best described as the shower scene from Psycho without the psycho. Or at least without one on screen. Your condition at that point may vary. Frankly, this film will not appeal to all viewers. But if you're the kind of viewer who would watch something titled "Asian Schoolgirls" on Netflix, then this is the sort of film you'd watch.
