Product Description

After a straight-laced detective is shot in the head while on assignment, he wakes up after a three-month coma to find that he sees everything upside down, literally. Hell bent on revenge, he becomes an assassin working for a group seeking to eliminate all those who deem themselves above the law. ENGLISH DUBBED (or original Thai with English subtitles)

Review

A great piece of stylish, badass neo-noir cinema. It's part ''Blast of Silence'', part ''The Killer'', with elements of a 'Bourne'-style on-the-run thriller... --INDIEWire

5.0 out of 5 stars Buddhist Noir February 15, 2013
Format:DVD
Fon Tok Kuen Fah (Rain Falling Up the Sky)
Pen-Ek Ratanaruang

There are dark movies whose darkness is purposeful. Noir films that are moving more than mysterious. Sad endings that are good endings. Suffering that teaches rather then thrills. Humor that is wicked but inevitable. The dark that is beautiful, regardless it's depths of hopelessness. These are the kinds of films that Pen-Ek Ratanaruang specializes in.
Fon Tok Kuen Fah, which translates to Rain Falling Up the Sky, but is named sensationally Headshot for westerners, is the third film of his I have had the pleasure of viewing. It is an adaptation of the novel of the same name written by award winning author Win Lyovarin. Pen-Ek's two earlier works that I have viewed left lasting impressions on me. Ruang Talok 69, or 6ixtynin9 as released in the US, was a dark comedy on level with Pulp Fiction, but more believable. Last Life in the Universe became one of my all time favorite films, one that still haunts me to this day. Headshot will stay with me as well, as a blend of noir, pulp, art-house, and action all wrapped up in political/social commentary paper and bright ribbons of spiritual morality.
To explain Headshot is simple, it has a simple plot. However, like all things beautifully simple, it is hard to do. Nopachai Jayanama plays Tul, a police officer who won't comprise his morals. In the very corrupt climate of Bangkok this gets him into trouble. Part of this trouble is female. Supporting actresses, Chanokporn Sayoungkul playing Tiwa, and Sirin Horwang playing Rin, are the two women that help cause some of this trouble Tul suffers.

4.0 out of 5 stars Clever take on action genre June 7, 2013
By Me
Format:Amazon Instant Video
This was a refreshing change from typical action movie. While there are the usual gun battles and blood, this movie used the aftermath of the main character's injury (a headshot) to begin to shift how he viewed the world and his place in it. So often, a traumatic event teaches us new things, and this movie plays off that truth to tell an interesting story.

4.0 out of 5 stars Delightfully exotic quick paced thriller June 15, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video
At times frenetic, which is good; but also some heavy old school plot cliches that are less so. Very watchable, you want to know what happens next, but there is a great deal of violence, which is very very good!

2.0 out of 5 stars Very nice artsy camera work -- story no so. September 21, 2013
By ms
Format:Amazon Instant Video
Very moody, very cool camera work, very moody sound, but the story is disjointed and becomes tedious. It's better than a 2 star but I sure can't give it a three. Good action, when there is any action.

5.0 out of 5 stars Surprising July 30, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video
Stumbled upon this film and found it very entertaining. I recommend watching. While the plot was a bit predictable about half way through, that doesn't take away from the fact that it is a good movie.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Modern Noir July 4, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video
Probably the only color noir film that captures the feeling of the old B&W classics. Following the narrative was at times challenging, but the disorientation added to the overall mood of the film. Like most foreign films, the conclusion doesn't cleanly wrap up all the loose ends.
