Director: Pen-ek Ratanaruang
Visionary director Pen-ek Ratanaruang (Ploy, MIFF 08) returns with another dreamlike journey through Bangkok's criminal underworld.
When a job goes terribly wrong, cop-turned-hitman Tul suffers a bullet to the head that leaves him in a coma for three months. When he awakes, Tul finds his vision has inverted - the entire world has been literally turned upside down. Damaged but vengeful, Tul must hunt his nemesis through the particularities of his past and the steady unravelling of his future.
Half blood-soaked revenge flick, half metaphysical musing on the nature of suffering, Headshot is a temporally and visually fragmented odyssey into the darkest recesses of the human psyche.
“A rich narrative that works just slightly outside of the box, albeit with ample bloodletting... a unique shot in the arm for international thrillers.” - Twitch
