Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Director Rick (Emerald Cities) Schmidt and Wayne (Chan is Missing) Wang were still novices when they combined their talents on A Man, A Woman and A Killer. Filmed on location in San Francisco, this Pirandellian drama is ostensibly about the adventures of a hit man. But as we watch the protagonist in action, we also observe the film crew following the actors around. Despite being taken "out" of the picture in this self-conscious manner, the audience is kept in thrall by the film's atmosphere and tension level. A Man, A Woman and A Killer proved an excellent launching pad for two distinguished cinematic talents.
