Critic Reviews for Fah talai jone (Tears of the Black Tiger)
Has lots of pop energy and an admirable poker-face when it comes to its Douglas Sirk-ian storyline. And even though it's essentially a Frankenstein's monster stitched together from a zillion other movies, you really haven't seen anything like it.
You've never seen and never will see anything quite like Tears of the Black Tiger.
Audience Reviews for Fah talai jone (Tears of the Black Tiger)
This is the kind of movie that restores my faith in cinema. A love letter to old Thai flicks and spaguetti westerns, "Tears" is the right mix of homage and style. This is not a "parody", and seems that western movie templates can't tolerate the existance of movies like this one without sticking the "parody" label. This movie was not spilled by some recycling-nostalgia-pop culture machine, made to sell false images of new "coolness" to kids. This a honest work of love and dedication, that happens to have fun with the material.
Cliche & over-the-top but mostly in right ways
Childhood sweethearts are tragically separated. One becomes an infamous bandit, and the other is arranged to marry a police captain who plans to hunt him down. A campy Thai spaghetti Western with arthouse visuals, this flick screams, "Look at me! I'm a cult movie!"
