HEADSHOT (fon tok kuen fah) (2011 THAILAND) D/W: PEN-EK RATANRUANG P: RAYMOND PHATHANAVIRANGOON/PAWAS SAWATCHAIYAMET
Nopachai Chaiyanam stars as a former cop turned hitman who survives a gunshot to the head, only to see the world upside-down afterwards. What at least sounds like an interesting gimmick is pretty much ignored in the scheme of things, and what we're left with is a confused flashback/flash-forward structure housing a slow, boring arthouse take on familiar exploitation movie cliches (the hitman who can't retire, the hooker with a heart of gold etc.). Based on a novel by Win Lyovarin. Director Ratanruang also made 6IXTYNIN9 (1999), among others.
