Aro Favourite Tears of the Black Tiger


aka: Fah Talai Jone
Thailand 2000, 101 minutes
Dir. Wisit Sasanatieng
In Thai with English subtitles
Rating: [R16]
Genres: Foreign Cinema, Cult, Action/Adventure, Comedy / Western


Aroview: A blast of wild inspiration from the New Thai Cinema, this restages a Hollywood Western within a luridly kitschy setting using back-projection, day-glo colours and theatrical acting styles.

Fusing the melodramatic story of two separated lovers with a gangster saga involving machinegun-toting mercenaries, reference points range from the 1950s Hollywood-imitating Thai movies to the violent action of Quentin Tarantino. Terrifically entertaining and unique.
