It is nice just to sit back and let the day-glo colours wash over you, marvelling at the high-spirited energy.

Tears of the Black Tiger ultimately works best as an exercise in cinematic style, making it not only a quirky little nostalgia trip but a noteworthy cult flick worth checking out.

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.

Tears of the Black Tiger is like a fever dream dripping with overripe romantic melodrama. Imagine Douglas Sirk directing a spaghetti western.

Jim Emerson

The movie is a riot of tropical turquoise, magenta and pink, spiced with marigold, red and green. You'd swear it was drenched in a tangy tamarind sauce

A garishly colored pastiche of classic Thai movie genres that draws liberally on both American and Hong Kong influences.

A parody of and winking homage to the history of Thai melodrama, Wisit Sasanatieng's uproarious filmmaking debut exuberantly combines pop and kitsch with a wholesome belief in the thrills of bad art.

... this pop-art confection both spoofs and celebrates the crazy conventions of movie melodramas and genre cinema with pure affection.

[Director] Sasanatieng engages the viewer's emotions fully in the squaring away of the eternal triangle, involving young people who emerge as three-dimensional individuals even though they are archetypal.

The result is something so old it's new, so corny it's funny. And while Tears of the Black Tiger is nothing more than entertaining, at least it's that.

Inspires the same happy, incredulous feeling as when Jackie Chan first bent the laws of nature or Chow Yun-Fat introduced the two-gun two-step.

Austin Chronicle

Despite its layers of references and patina of kitsch, the movie is sincere at its core, inspiring indulgence of its tinted-sepia flashbacks of childhood meet cutes and its over-the-top, mustache-twirling rival (Kitsuwon).
