Directed by Wayne Wang | 1982

With Wood Moy, Marc Hayashi, Laureen Chew

Two taxi drivers scour San Francisco’s Chinatown for the titular mystery man, who has disappeared along with their $4,000. What emerges from this simple, noir-inflected setup is a freewheeling, funny, frequently tense, and wholly surprising study of Chinese-American identity in all its forms. Made for under $20,000, Wang’s breakout sleeper hit stands as one of the key independent films of the 1980s.
