BOOGIE 1

“Boogie” marks the directorial debut for Eddie Huang, who turned his autobiography, “Fresh Off the Boat,” into a phenomenally successful television series, and one lauded for its sensitive handling of humor and love for Asian culture. Huang remains interested in pursuing such coverage with “Boogie,” which explores the challenges facing a young basketball prodigy dealing with the demands of education, love, and his career prospects while managing expectations from his Chinese parents. While it deals with deep insecurities and complex family issues, Huang is more comfortable with crudeness, trying to engage a younger audience for the movie, which largely confronts adult issues. It’s a messy feature highlighting Huang’s inexperience behind the camera, often downplaying what works so well in his screenplay, leading to a frustrating viewing experience.
