comments:
Lucy Liu is best known for her starring role in Ally McBeal. She has also starred in such films as Charlie's Angels, Kill Bill and Shanghai Noon.

We admit that we occasionally watch Ally McBeal, and Lucy Liu is one of the main reasons why. She plays her role as a cold and calculating co-worker with pure perfection, and we wouldn't have it any other way. Lucy Liu has broken the mold that Asian actors are prone to passivity, and made herself a veritable star.

. Lucy Liu

City of Industry (1997)

Title: City of Industry
Released: 1997
Genre: Crime / Thriller
Runtime: 97 min
Country: USA
Language: English

Tagline: Wanting a man dead can be reason enough to live.

Plot Summary: Lee Egan lures his older brother Roy out of "retirement" with a sweet jewel heist, only to get killed by a backstabbing partner; then it's up to Roy to get revenge.

Comments: This movie was written for Harvey Keitel, it fits him like a glove; and Stephen Dorff playing the antagonist, it is a perfect fit as well!!!! These two go back and forth like a Leonard-Hearns fight from the 1980's, blow for blow. There was a few slow spots, but all in all I highly enjoyed this film, I suggest giving it a view.


Scene Description: Lucy Liu topless while dancing onstage at a strip club in this rare nude scene.

Flypaper (1997)

Title: Flypaper
Released: 1997
Runtime: 108 min
Country: USA
Language: English

Plot Summary: Flypaper is a curious name for this shaggy-dog film about characters who continually cross paths as their lives careen out of control. Craig Sheffer is the ostensible lead, though his hotheaded, gun-toting criminal is hardly the picture's hero. He kick-starts the story by kidnapping meth lab chemist Lucy Liu, and then hunts down his junkie girlfriend, Sadie Frost, who is now under the care of her crotchety real estate mogul guardian (Robert Loggia). In the very next room is John C. McGinley, cheating on his jealous future bride, Illeana Douglas, with Talisa Soto, a dominatrix in tight leather. The film plays out these threads as if they are destined to intertwine in some improbable climax, but instead they merely crisscross in passing, finally fraying in a soft, anticlimactic conclusion. The performers try to have some fun with their familiar parts, and writer-director Klaus Hoch tosses in a few curve balls (my favorite is the knife sticking out of Sheffer's skull like a topknot, turning the homicidal heist man into a punch-drunk pussycat), but for all his offbeat humor and funky twists, nothing in Flypaper ever sticks.

Comments: A very good movie, that unfortunately has not been viewed by many people. The plot is complex, but the way it is pulled off; this must be one of a very few titles that was entertaining in the year of 1997. My advice is everybody should at least check it out!


Scene Description: In a strange sex scene, we see Lucy Liu take off her robe to go fully nude before she lies down in an empty swimming pool with a guy and they go at it while snakes crawl around them.

Personal quotes

"I grew up in Jackson Heights, Queens, with no money. I was taught not to take anything for granted. If you are too busy being a diva or a freak, then you are not enjoying it."

"Everything I buy is vintage and smells funny. Maybe that's why I don't have a boyfriend."

"It's so much fun playing her (Ling), but I have this fear that people are going to run away from me in terror on the streets. They think I'm going to bite their heads off or something."

"I'm so proud of my heritage, but yes, I think there's always a danger when people put you on a pedestal. Especially when you're just trying to live your life and pursue your dreams. The intention is not to represent Asian Americans, but to be an Asian American who is working as an actress. People often confuse the two. When you are "representing", you have the burden of some people projecting their hopes onto you. This can eventually lead to a certain amount of disappointment. I strive to not deny myself experiences that open up to me. I hope to live without looking back in regret. If people want to join me on the ride, then I'm happy to have them along."

"Martial arts are art forms and require a great deal of discipline and dedication. I so admire people who focus their lives on it, because it's not an easy thing to do."

"Producing is like pushing jello up a hill on a hot day."
