Southeast Asia Movie: Headshot

February 5, 6:30pm - 8:30pm
Mānoa Campus, Center for Korean Studies Add to Calendar


Thailand, 2011 (105 min)
Director: Pen-ek Ratanaruang

This "Buddhist film noir," as writer-director Pen-ek Ratanaruang calls it, is surprisingly slow-moving and soulful for a film full of double-crosses and cold-blooded killing. Zigzagging back and forth in time, it follows cool-guy Tul (Nopachai Chaiyanam) from a fairly mindless life of instinct and action to that Zen state Cesar Millan calls "calm submissive."
