Shopping for Fangs


A lycanthropic accounting clerk, an unfulfilled housewife, and a mysterious lesbian waitress in a blonde Marilyn wig are a few of the “hyphenated Americans” whose stories converge in this comedy-thriller mashup that turns a queer eye toward suburban Asian America. Quentin Lee (The People I’ve Slept With) and Justin Lin (Fast Five) were still film students at UCLA when they co-directed this 90s indie cinema werewolf pastiche, which co-stars John Cho in his feature film debut.
