Kay recounts the story to another psychiatrist (Tony Shalhoub).

This concept is especially problematic since Hill is at his best when he allows characters to define themselves purely through their actions instead of relentlessly explaining themselves as they do here.

At a bachelorette party in a nightclub, the bride tells 2 guys offering blow to go away. The groom's 2 big brothers looked after their kid brother as kids and do so now again as veterans, "looking" for her and the 2 guys.

Alex, a mysterious thief, is pulled in by her former partner for one last heist.

That said, “The Assignment” is still a problematic work in many ways from a purely cinematic perspective.

The screenplay by Hill & Denis Hamill (which Hill has been toying with since the late ‘70s) is an awkward construction with much of the story presented in a series of flashbacks, as the now-incarcerated Dr.

Director Walter Hill read journalist-writer Denis Hamill's first draft of this screenplay in 1978.

Years later Hill optioned it and revised the script before abandoning it for several years. They were worthless pieces of shit, but I killed them, and you're not supposed to kill people.

Additionally, to suggest that Frank is meant to represent all transgender people is nonsense because he is clearly not one himself, and, outside of the obvious physical construct, little about him changes after undergoing his forced surgery.

I would also point out that no less of a filmmaker than Pedro Almodovar used the notion of unwilling gender reassignment surgery as a plot point in his own unabashed genre exercise, “The Skin I Live In,” and no one seemed especially put off by it even though the deployment there was arguably more questionable from a taste perspective than what is seen here.
