Here's my review: In this Thai thriller, an ex-cop becomes a hitman, gets shot in the head and survives, albeit with a strange condition that causes him to see things upside-down (I’ll wait while you look it up on Web-MD). This film pulls off the rare feat of being glacially slow and still almost impossible to follow, as the plot jumps back-and-forth in time as he tries to figure out who wronged him and why. Actually, “jumps” is the wrong word. It hobbles back-and-forth. And there are so few point-of-view shots (which are actually cool) it’s difficult to identify with what he’s going through. You know, the whole upside-down thing. At least I wasn’t alone in hating it. Let’s just say I’ve seen less walkouts during a labor strike.

First and last time I can remember that happening. Can't remember what excuse they used.

Way more noir-y than action-y, kinda like a bhuddist meditation on tough-guy tropes in a Kitano-esque fashion. Totally worth seeing (once you get Looper out of the way)
