6ixtynin9 is slight, but entertaining; patchy, but not a total mess.

Its deadly punchlines suggest the archetypal "cosmic joke" with more emphasis on the tragic side of the tragedy-comedy continuum.

A crafty, shifty crime film... pleasantly alive.

Those expecting a raunchy sex comedy from the provocatively titled 6ixtynin9 are in for a severe letdown
| Original Score: 3/5
Sean Axmaker
Seattle Post-Intelligencer
January 10, 2005
Ingeniously engineered, self-consciously clever and directed with snazzy style, it's played as a violent black comedy with often-gruesome punch lines.
| Original Score: B-

"6ixtynin9" is darkly funny, tongue in cheek humor that shows the ingrained talent of its director and his deft hand at the helm.

Village Voice

Enlivens some dingy genre predicaments (dirty money, corpse disposal) with gusts of dreamlike whimsy and a sardonic take on local economic woes.

6ixtynin9 prend les traits d'une %u0153uvre peinte avec le plus grand soin, mais dont les nombreuses couches de peinture n'arrivent pas à cacher complètement tous les numéros.

Thai director Pen-ek Ratanaruang's splatter comedy 6ixtynin9 rejoices in a plot as tricky as its spelling.

Stylish, funny, and fun to watch (and quite morbid at times), and even offers relevant insight into the conditions created by the Thai economy.

It is a lot of fun and allows us to track the growth of a special artist.

May 20, 2005
Though Quentin Tarantino's influence is clear, writer-director Pen-Ek Ratanaruang imbues this material with an engaging energy and a bittersweet undercurrent of alienated sorrow that makes it seem fresh.
