Headshot Quick Review

Headshot Amazon Instant

I've been waiting to see this since it was shown at the last Pacific Asian Film Festival. An assassin gets shot in the head and wakes up with his sight turned upside down. I first thought it would be some killer shots of upside down fights, but director Pen-Ek Ratanaruang instead brings a film noir detective story with violence, sex and twists. My upside down kill only happen a few times. There's some great cinematography, but be warned the movie flows in and out to build a strange time line of events. You have some nice first person kills too.
