Big Thanks
Wednesday, February 15, 2006

This is a big THANK YOU to Zoe who has designed my new website and has put so much attention and care to this Blogspot. Zoe you are truly the best and sweetest. People like you and the fans who have contributed by posting and sending in clips, you guys are real gems. Thanks guys for constantly keeping in touch with me and checking in from time to time.

Oh I noticed several of you keep asking about the soundtrack. If you want the Saving Face soundtrack, you need to call in Sony Classics in Los Angeles and make a formal request. The more you ask, the easier it is for them to get the picture.

Big kiss.
Michelle

Hi MK,
I am glad I am the first to post comment, I looked at time, n think I got on web just after you finished. B4 I go to bed, I need to calm down my emotions a little bit, so I get on line. By looking your pictures I feel relaxing and getting out of stress. It makes me dream back to my young age. I have been thinking you need to grow up. If you have time, take a look of Meryl Streep's website. No worry, you are really doing well on your career. I believe you can be the Chinese Meryl Streep. Hope you don't mind I use Meryl to compare. Meryl is a great actress in my mind. Michelle Krusiec WILL be another great actress!

^Michelle's got her own style I like her just the way she is. Thanks for the info on the soundtrack I'll make sure I look into it. Props to Zoe for working so hard on your blog site. How was your week Michelle? Anything new? My life has been work and sleep these past few. I feel like I need to get out and do something spontaneous. How was Valentine's Day? I'm sure your mail was filled with good stuff. This was the first Valentine's day in 6 years that I was single. So it was a little awkward but no worries there. Hopefully everything in your life is going well. Take it easy and always take care of your health first. Well I'm off have a good rest of the week and I will wait for your next entry. Bye

I'd love to have the soundtrack too. Will send in a request to Sony. Michelle, it's so nice to hear from you time to time, especially before bed time. You will put me into a good sleep tonight :)
Thank you Zoe again. Your efforts benefit so many of us!

hi, Michelle
Last year, prior to the New York opening of Saving Face, I ran into Lynn and her mother in an Asian feastival here in Union Square. Her mother and my mother happen to be friends, althogh I have never met either of them. But talk about "...One billion Chinese people, two degrees of separation...."
Anyway, since I work for a company that also owns The HollywoodReporter, Backstage, Nielsen and ACNielsen, I hae always enjoyed meeting performers of all sorts.
However, work and other family engagements kept me away from the movies, so I missed the New York run of Saving Face.
Couple days ago, when I realized that your movie is out on DVD, I told myself I have to see it. It was such a delightful movie, pointing out some of the flaws in the more traditional Asian American culture in a non-offensive way. The acting in the moving were quite impressive as well, especially the role of Wil. I am now convinced that I will have to buy the DVD, mail it to you and ask you to autograph it for me. Just have a feeling that one day, some of the cast members of this movie will really make it big...and I am betting my money on you.
What an interesting last name you have...is there a story behind it?
It is too bad that you live in the left coast, rather than here in New York (yes, I am convinced that the best of everything should all be in New York City).
If you are ever in town (NYC, that is), it'd be a pleasure to get the opportunity to meet you in person, and just peek into that talented mind of yours.
Perhaps you should consider bringing MIT to New York City for a run as well?
Oh, and, just have to mention, that people like Adam Corolla, and the ones who lack true talent need to do whatever they can to get their name out in the spotlight. Even by running their stupid mouth...press still love to cover them...they create catchy headlines. Best way to deal with people like him: blast him once in the public and then bury him. No media attention, no coverage, no careeer for him. It's a really simple weapon that my journalist wife(oh, did I mention she has two Pulitzer Prizes under her belt?) had used when she has to get the politians to work with her.
Anyway, this is turning out to be much longer than what I was going to write initially. It was supposed to be "...Great work, enjoyed your acting...."
Well, I will find a way to leave my contact information somehow so if you want a few new friends in New York, you can look us up (maybe I will leave it in the DVD I hope you will autograph for me...will mail it to the contact address in your site).
Hope to see alot more of you very soon.

 
At 19/2/06 09:32, Blogger imgod945 said...

will Sony Taiwan handle the release of your soundtrack? If so, perhaps I can get in touch with them for you...family friends, you know how that Asian family stuff goes....

Hey Michelle,

I saw your blog via Gary Chou's manja.org . Anyway, I did see Saving Face and I recommended to my mom and my brother.

If you can imagine how embarrased my 29 year old brother would be to go out to even do ONE thing with my mom (who is from Taiwan), you'd be happily surprised to know that they both laughed and enjoyed the movie together!

Was wondering how your parents reacted when they saw your movie, but I bet that's in your _Made In Taiwan_ piece?

Anyway, I look forward to seeing more of your work and hope to see _Made in Taiwan_ here in San Francisco one day.

(PS The names of my family members have been changed to protect the innocent) :)

Wow, you care so much for your fans, I think that is so great. I am huge fan of yours, Michelle and I was estactic to find this blog and find that you actually reply to fans. I just hope that you will reply my message, if you have the time and want to of course. Was surprise to hear your shoutout to Singapore, did you come to Singapore? I watched Saving face twice in the cinema and loved it so much, that I went to buy the uncensored version (Singapore censors some portion) from the USA and I have been watching it everyday since. It is great to watch it to destress. Watching the movie destress me and inspires me to work harder. Of course hearing your voice cheers my day up as well. I hope to be able to see you in person one day, if you ever pop by Singapore or New Zealand. I love you so much. Personal Question, are you attached at the moment? too personal, it is ok not to answer. Do take care and hope to see more of you in the future. God bless. From Wyse (Singapore/ NZ)

Hey Michelle~ How is everything these days? Wow it has been another long week. Hope all is well. I tried contacting Sony Pictures Classic about the soundtrack for Saving Face but everytime I call it transfers me to the department that sells movie posters? Is there a special number I have to call?

Anyways, anything new in your life? I bet everyday there is something new huh? Must be busy trying to keep up with your schedule and stuff. Well you're doing a good job so keep it up. I was hoping that you would perform up here in the San Francisco area. That'd be great! I know it's hard right now but I promise your hard work will pay off in the end. Keep healthy and we all hope to hear from you again soon. Take care Michelle~ until next time...

I agree with escenkay, you need to perform your show up in the Bay Area ASAP! I'm sure the asian-american community will appreciate it. I've enjoyed your work immensely in Saving Face (I watch it at least once a day. o_0) Wil and Vivian are such a cute couple in the movie. :)
BTW, I <3 Michelle!

Brokeback Mountain, a story of 2 cowboys who fell in love with each other. period. In terms of acting, Heathe Ledger was very good. I fell asleep through some parts......no comparison with Saving Face... :)it's just sad that Saving Face wasn't given a more deserving media attention.

 
At 27/2/06 20:29, Anonymous Swooshi said...

I think most of us felt for SF becos we are chinese/asian? I could totally feel and understand the relationship between Wil and Ma. We all love and care for our mums but just can't stand the nagging and the way they try to manipulate and control our lives such as the clothes we wear, the friends we choose...it's just so natural for Chinese mums to do that!
Perhaps Michelle can share if this movie has made her discover how deep her Chinese roots truly were.
Keep up the good work Michelle and really looking forward to seeing your next movie!

Wil: "If you want to blast on someone, go find yourself a husband to blast on"

What an attitude from a daughter err...speaking for myself :X

 
At 28/2/06 08:46, Anonymous Aileen (not the serial killer) said...

So... I guess I don't have much to add to the other comments... But good on you, for being part of the Saving Face crew. I'm a Chinese-Indonesian Dutch gay girl (speaking of minorities). You can't even imagine what this movie has done for my life, for my parents, my family. Long story, I'll spare you the details.

I work for the Cinemasia Film Festival in the Netherlands. I also work for the Pink Filmdays. I hope to see you at either festival on the big screen sometime. HAH! No no no, let me rephrase: I hope to see you there in person sometime. Granted I will trip over something, hit my head, pass out and not see you at all... It could be the best encounter I've never had.

I love your works, I simply adore you... You're my fairytale heroin. And for all that, many thanks from me.

Much love,

-Aileen

PS: I'm also looking forward to the soundtrack! I've already noticed the Cat Power contribution. ;)

swooshi & chinkgirl,

My feelings towards SAVING FACE & BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN totally harmonizes with your annotations.

It's kind of farcical that eventhough we're grown, our parents
(esp. moms) tend to forget that we are capable of making our own choices in our lives.


I think at one point or another while watching the movie we all reminiced and said...
"that happens to me all the time"

smooches & embrace

"Hello Mrs. PANG!"

HAHA I'm sorry but I thought that was the funniest line in Saving Face. I showed it to them and they all seemed to like it. They especially liked your performance Michelle. Just thought I'd stop by and say hello. Take care

 
At 1/3/06 05:08, Anonymous duong said...

@PK: It's "bust on" not "blast on". Reason why I remember is because I've watched the movie over 30+ times already o.0
I've been recommending it to everyone I know, and people think I'm nuts for having watched it that many times.

I can totally relate to this movie because Wil reminds me a lot of myself. I'm a shy vietnamese-american bisexual tomboy with a korean-american femme girlfriend. Both of our mothers know about "us" but they avoid the subject.

They should make a SAVING FACE II movie. Wil and Viv finally move in together but Viv wants to have a baby (she realizes that she does love children). So, begins Wil and Viv's journey on finding a sperm donor. Mix that in with Ma's new hair salon business and the hijinks that'll ensue between Wil and Ma's new daughter who is around 2-3 years old now. What do you guys think? ^_^

Michelle gave the best performance in this movie. That is the reason why I've watched it so many times. :)

 
At 1/3/06 08:54, Blogger chinkgirl said...

Haha! It would be nice to have Saving Face II that will double the comedy, etc. However, the plot of finding a sperm donor is so L-Wordish...y'know, Bette and Tina? :)

At 2/3/06 00:43, Anonymous duong said...

@chinkgirl: Yah I know it's L Word"ish", but can't you tell that I watch the L Word too! :-D
Here's another plot for you then. Viv and Wil decide to get married. But Wil has the wedding jitters, and all of a sudden her ex-gf (the one that Ma caught her with) shows up! And the ex-gf will be played by me! ::Evil Grin:: Ah, that'll be like a dream come true! ^_^ Wil then has to re-evaluate what her priorities are in life.

On a MK related note, I watched one of her episodes of Travellers when she went to Japan. Wow, she looked so young in it. There was one part where she said "Wow" and I was like OMG, reminds me so much of Wil. It just made me feel all giddy inside. ^_^

We didn't say we don't love the way MK DOLLS' herself up, as you put it...
And we all know she's a convincing actress,that's the reason why we are all here,that's why you are here.
Of course she is not WIL, for WIL is only a fictional character,but a lot of us relate to her in our own little way,when she played WIL.
So RELAX,we love MK,it doesn't matter what kind of role she plays,or what she wears,it just so happens that we are crazy about WIL!!!!

BUT ALSO I MIGHT POINT OUT IF I MAY, TECHNICALLY, SHE DIDN'T HAVE TO DEFY ANYTHING,FOR THE SIMPLE FACT THAT SHE TRANSCENDS AT WHAT SHE DOES,THAT'S WHY SHE IS IN THE FIELD THAT SHE IS IN NOW.

AND FOR THAT >ANONYMOUS< NO NEED TO EXUDE YOUR RETALIATION, BEC. IF YOU LOOK AT BOTH COMMENTS,BOTH OF YOU AGREE ON ALL OF THE THINGS.SO, IT'S VIVID AS A CRYSTAL CLEAR WATER THAT THERE'S REALLY NO DISAGREEMENT.

At 6/3/06 20:04, Blogger Michelle said...

hey guys, just checkin in. So, some of you like the dressed down Wil. Well, I love Wil and always "will" (ha ha), but the truth is I'm a lot girlier than Wil. However, there's something wonderfully simple and real about Wil and I think that's a part of me too. If it wasn't, I don't think I would have been able to play her. In the mornings I certainly don't wake up feeling girlie, I just love certain girlie things like makeup and fashion. I think it's because I grew up with two older brothers my whole life and we didn't have a lot of money growing up, so I had to wear my brother's hand me downs. I also shopped at a lot of thrift stores as a kid which made me really think about how to make cheap clothes look good. Isn't it funny that now in Hollywood, thrift store clothes are so desirable and expensive! So now that I'm older and can dress myself, I admit, I really like to dress up whenever I can and be feminine. But when it comes to expressing myself, I like to think that there are days when I can be girlie or I can be wacky or sporty or stupid...well, you get the point. Hopefully, I can show you guys more sides of myself through my work with future roles. Right now, I've got some projects in the works - as soon as they are firm - I'll be sure to let you all know. Big girlie kiss....or a simple shy "Wil" one, however, you prefer ; ) love, michelle

@chinggai:
The next Alice Wu?! Ah... thanks. Well I do have a lot of stories to tell about my mom and I'm actually trying to write a book about her. But it's so hard...
Maybe someday if I ever do write a story I can send it to Alice to direct! :-P

Hm, a lot of drama over MK and the character Wil. We should just concentrate on spreading our love for MK. In a way, a lot of actresses/actors put themselves into their characters.

@ ee hoon:
I agree with you about someone like Wil exists in our society. I'm very much like Wil although I consider myself bisexual but leaning more towards women at this point in my life.

Why don't we move this over to MK's forum? Her forum is hurtin' and I would love to chat with you gals and guys over there (instead of having to use MK's blog comment section).
Here's the link if you guys can't find it:

@ ee hoon:
You forgot to mention Memoirs of a Geisha. It won numerous Oscars for costume/cinematography etc.

I hope that Michelle can headline a big Hollywood motion picture comparable to Memoirs. She deserves it!

hey Ee-Hoon I am sure nobody is taking special interest in just your post, it's a general post for everyone here. They didn't address it to you right? And I don't think they were talking about you either really. You seem like you think too much :) lighten up a little.

 
At 7/3/06 22:15, Blogger chinggai said...

yup totally agree with you

hi michelle,

i couldn't find "pickle juice" you mentioned. I can find "pickle ginger" and other pickles, can I just take the juice of these? If not, can you take a pix? Can't try your recipe yet :/

Err...sorry others, let me side track to her recipe.

side note: So happy Ang Lee won the Best Director in Oscar. Open doors to many possibilies....

 
At 8/3/06 01:01, Blogger Ee Hoon . 燕云 said...

Respond to Katy:

Oh yes, "Annoymous" always attention her post to @eehoon. Did you read. post in particular?

In general:

I'm not upset with hers/his comment. However I'm often worry that my thoughts will upset others, that's why its a little tense for me... even now as I type this. I had bad experience posting in here before.

To everyone,

I find Wil an extremely interesting character to watch in the movie. All her reactions and response were very natural and tickle your laugh bugs. She and Ma added comedic elements to their dialogue with their expression and eyes contact. Saving Face is fun filled, heartwarming and very real in respect to the mother and daughter relationship. Anyway, its good that Michelle responded very positively about the dress down Wil. The reason I've enjoyed watching Michelle is also because of her true self and her frankness in most of the interview I have seen of her. I think this is a very chinese thing "the frankness". I guess being Asian American gives one that advantage of having the characteristic of both culture and upbringing. Very interesting indeed.

hi ee hoon

instead of seeing Lee Ang direct SF i would rather see Alice Wu direct something like BBM 10 years...no, 5 years from now and win an Oscar!
go Alice go! you can do it girl!
we'll all go crazy posting on the blog if that happens!
: )

 
At 8/3/06 11:50, Anonymous duong said...

Ang Lee directing Saving Face? I would have to agree with Swooshi that Saving Face is Alice Wu's baby. She had this vision of Saving Face with her for 5 years. So, who knows the script better? Alice Wu. And part of Wil's character is based on Alice herself. I'm not sure if Ang Lee would've been able to give Michelle, Joan Chen and Lynn Chen the proper direction and guidance. Michelle even studied Alice's little behaviors and incorporated them into Wil.

Also Ang Lee's speciality is dramatic pictures, I'm not sure if he could pull off a romantic comedy (with some drama) like Saving Face. We would definitely see a different kind of movie if he had directed Saving Face.

Yeah i agree with swooshi & duong, nobody can deliver SF like the way ALICE WU DID for the simple fact that it's hers. I think SF is perfect the way it is.........

I know about "annoymous" not being a person. To be exact, its a person who has either not set up an account with blogger, not signed into the account or who don't wish to be known. Like now, I can post as annoymous too.

I wish though that those who wish to respond to other posting to leave their ID so that we can respond accordingly.

Saving Face had a very tight schedule. Shot in 27 days and their budget was a little tight. There may be some obvious flaws in the editing, but just take Saving Face as it is--this little gem of a movie, with all it's little quirks and charms. This is why I love the movie so much. If we get too analytical about it, like what if... or what if that... etc, then you're taking away from what the movie was meant to convey.

This comment section is getting a little bit off topic and rather long (and kinda hard to load too), so we should take any further discussion to Michelle's forums. I think the webmaster and Michelle might appreciate it.

BTW, I watched Michelle's appearances in Grey's Anatomy, NCIS and Weeds. All 3 showed a different side to Michelle's acting abilities, which I was pleased to see. It's time to scour Netflix to find the rest of Michelle's performances. :) I wish Michelle had her own TV show though. Regardless, I still enjoy her work!

I'm the culprit, I'm rather long winded. My apologys, have to do with the age.

I agree with Duong about not being too analytical about the movie. I believe Alice knows where the continuity faults are, I'm sure she wished she had more time to get all these rights. Actually, they do have a professional production team which is why the cinematography and most of the film colour setting and tone etc were very well controlled and lit. The sound was good. The continuity issues lies on the continuity person, sometimes the director can save it during post production sometimes not. On the whole the first time I watch it everything seem perfect. The first impression was the deepest so that left a lasting memory.

My favorite was the clean, minimalist opening scene with the contrasting black and white where Wil was masking her face and the phone rang, then the sound track came on. From that opening alone, you can tell the tremendous potential of Alice Wu in creativity and sensitivity.

Welcome you all to visit my blog for further discussion instead of taking up space here. I shall keep the posting short over here from here on. My apology again.

>>ee hoon<<

Just pls enjoy the movie instead of trying to be so protocol about it, it was a low budget film with A PERFECT PLOT...I'm sure just about 99.9% of people here would agree with me that it was.Plus the movie is done and over with so even there are mistakes it can no longer be corrected.

I'M SURE ALICE IS SATISFIED FOR THE SIMPLE FACT THAT SHE WAS DETAILED ABOUT EVERYTHING, >MICHELLE< said so herself on one of the INTERVIEWS on the DIARY OF SAVING FACE....

hi duong & chinggai,
u guys seem to read my mind. had exactly the same thoughts. i enjoy the SF movie, like the storyline, admire the director, love the cast esp michelle, it's a great movie, period.

i also saw michelle's appearances in those tv dramas duong mentioned, thanks again to fans on the net for sharing them. And that's how i discovered michelle is such a versatile actress and natural performer. grey's anatomy is running on cable tv in s'pore and i can't wait to see the episode with michelle in it.

yup, let's not clog this blog with long analysis of SF or any other movies.

ps: hey chinggai, congrats on winning the lotto! pls use the $ to buy more SF dvds for your friends!
