FILM REVIEW; Is It Real, or Just a Bout Of Paralyzing Paranoia?
NYTimes - about 19 years
Hollywood-style hubris has rarely been portrayed as indelibly as it is in an early scene of Wim Wenders's brilliant puzzle of a film, ''The End of Violence.'' In it a bullying producer of action-adventure films named Mike Max (Bill Pullman), who intermittently narrates the movie, is shown doing tough business while lounging beside the swimming pool

Lalu Nathoy, or China Polly, as she is nicknamed in "1,000 Pieces of Gold," overcomes almost as many perils as Pauline in the cool, clear-eyed historical drama that opens today at the Angelika Film Center.

Challenging The Asian Illusion
NYTimes - over 25 years
For a very long time, when people talked about race, they talked about black America and white America. Where did that put Asian-Americans?

REVIEWS/THEATER; ASSIMILATING IMMIGRANTS AND KEEPING TRADITIONS
NYTimes - over 28 years
LEAD: ''Green Card'' is at its most effective when instead of trying to score points, it concentrates on the anomalies of America's reception and rejection of the newest Americans.

'EYE FOR AN EYE' IS SOFT-CORE VIOLENCE
NYTimes - over 35 years
''CHUCK NORRIS doesn't need a weapon ... he is a weapon!'' That's the ad copy for ''An Eye for an Eye,'' and it certainly is catchy - but it gives a slight misimpression. Mr. Norris, star of such martial-arts movies as ''The Octagon'' and this one, isn't as savage as that line makes him sound. He has fluffy blond hair, performs his stunts in chinos

Timeline
Learn about memorable moments in the evolution of Rosalind Chao
1957
Born on September 23, 1957.
1972
Her first acting role was in the CBS sitcom Here's Lucy, but she was first noticed performing in another CBS sitcom: 1972's short-lived Anna and the King as the eponymous king's (Yul Brynner) eldest daughter.
Dropping out of acting, Chao enrolled in the communications department at the University of Southern California where she earned her degree in journalism. However, after spending a year as a radio newswriting intern at the CBS-owned Hollywood radio station KNX, she soon returned to acting. Remembering Chao from Anna and the King, television producer Burt Metcalfe provided her big break with the role of Soon-Lee, a South Korean refugee, in the final episodes of the TV series M*A*S*H. Soon-Lee married longtime starring character Maxwell Klinger (Jamie Farr) in the series finale "Goodbye, Farewell and Amen", the most-watched television episode of all time.
1983
Chao continued playing the character in the M*A*S*H sequel: 1983's AfterMASH, her first role billed at co-starring status.
1999
Chao regularly portrayed the Japanese exo-botanist Keiko O'Brien (née Ishikawa) on both Star Trek: The Next Generation and Star Trek: Deep Space Nine with eight appearances in the former and 19 in the latter before DS9's end in 1999.
2010
In 2010, a preliminary casting memo for The Next Generation from 1987 was published, revealing that Chao was originally considered for the part of Enterprise security chief Tasha Yar.
