Critic Reviews for Headshot

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (5) | Fresh (7) | Rotten (4)

While there are some great twists and revelations here, I just kept wishing it would stop with all the cinematic tricks and get to more conventional, straight- forward storytelling.

Seattle Times
Top Critic

A dreamy, elliptical neo-noir about a cop turned killer turned something else altogether.

New York Times
Top Critic

Headshot is, unfortunately, far better with ideas than with narrative.

Top Critic

Neither fresh nor especially satisfying, but Ratanaruang distinguishes the hunt with his fluid kineticism, especially in the just-a-touch-too-infrequent shoot-outs and beatdowns.

Village Voice
Top Critic

Its vision of contemporary Thailand is recognizable as another society undeserving of redemption, but worthy of poetry.

Top Critic

If the titular headshot leaves Tul with inverted vision, the film too turns the characteristics of genre upside-down, defamiliarising everything - an effect that is helped considerably by Ratanaruang's way with moody stylisation.

Little White Lies

The visual contrast between the ultraviolent showdowns and the quieter, more character-driven moments is striking.

This Thai crime thriller has some novel ideas and is strikingly shot, but a jumbled, overreaching narrative robs it of cohesion.

The Aristocrat

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.

Slant Magazine

A crisp crime thriller with a perfectly calibrated atmosphere

Full Review… | June 30, 2012
Moviedex

It's wholly unfair to judge a movie on what it could have been, but few films place their potential on a pedestal and fail to engage it like Headshot.
