I think us Asians have a certain nuance with people — qing — that foreign people I just don’t think have. Watching A Better Tomorrow and those John Woo movies — they don’t see the stuff that we see. We see that kinship between males and friends; they see bullets flying around and action sequences. So it’s a different thing that I think we have.
