Book of Rules

A likable mosaic of stories about dating set in the Bay Area, Sung H. Kim's 2002 debut feature traces the romantic entanglements of three Asian-American roommates—an ambitious, womanizing executive; a drugged-out slacker; and a coffeehouse barista—each of whom defies the stereotype of the geeky Asian male in a different way. Although the complications the men encounter are realistic, the dialogue is at times pretentious and sappy, and the endlessly digressive plot is a challenge to the attention span. As a visual stylist, Kim is wildly inconsistent, switching erratically between shaky digicam and steady long takes. 107 min.
