Assassin (film #6 in the Indie section of Movieflix (www.movieflix.com)). [Category: Outtakes & Obscurities]

This short, strange film features a Chinese assassin, Wong Yung, and documents him shooting his latest victim, a prosecuting attorney named Mr. Widderoe. The film seems Chinese and is narrated in Chinese with English subtitles, but appears to take place in America, with views of American newspaper headlines. Also, it's said at one point that Wong Yung is a judge, so maybe his assassinations are a form of moonlighting? I can't figure this film out. It is rather well-made and compelling to watch, though.

Ratings: Camp/Humor Value: *. Weirdness: ****. Historical Interest: ****. Overall Rating: ***.
