Chan Is Missing

An indie Black and White film whose short running time barely qualifies it as a feature, Chan is Missing is best known as director Wayne Wang's breakout film. Wood Moy and Marc Hayashi portray a pair of Chinese cab drivers: Moy as the Chinese immigrant who has not quite assimilated, and Hayashi as the hipster, westernized one. Their familial banter centers on a search for Chan, a colleague who has disappeared and who owes Moy money. Recalling Samuel Beckett's Waiting for Godot, Wang reportedly shot Chan on such a small budget that he wound up cutting his actual print footage and inserted voice overs and cutaways in order to conceal the lack of lip sync.
