A classic, albeit unsolvable, brainteaser.

Wang makes Chan Is Missing to a similar recipe-the film is imbued with, and is entirely about, Chinese-ness, but adopts a quintessentially American form, the film noir mystery.

Every element in the movie illustrates its underlying concerns: identity and assimilation among Asian-Americans, sociolinguistics, and what one character in the tale describes as "cross-cultural misunderstandings."

what develops isn't a mystery, but rather a look at the city from the inside out.

Jan 20, 2006 | Rating: 3.5/5

By no means great, but an astonishing achievement for $20,000.

A delight.

Audience Reviews for Chan Is Missing

This movie wasn't exactly what I expected or wanted to see, but it was okay. You learn a lot about Chinese Americans, Chinatown, and culture clashes. I liked that part, and the little bits of humor strewn about. What I didn't like was the ending.
