Directed by Wayne Wang | 1982

With Wood Moy, Marc Hayashi, Laureen Chew

Two taxi drivers (Moy and Hayashi) scour San Francisco’s Chinatown for the titular mystery man, who has disappeared along with their $4,000. What emerges from this simple set-up is a freewheeling, funny, frequently tense, and wholly surprising study of Chinese-American identity in all its forms. Made for under $20,000, this “matchless delight” (The New York Times) was the arthouse sleeper hit of 1982.
