Mama or Wai Wai or Sugas ?

"A Funny Story About 6 and 9" alternative title "Draining Day" starts off with a woman getting fired from her job. After dreaming about suicide, she finds a lot of money and a very eventful day begins. Visionary director of "Last Life in the Universe" and "Headshot" helms a humorous tragedy that starts because a missing screw turns apartment 6 into apartment 9. Confusing ending.

This is a great movie and one hell uv a twist. Order it and see the hidden cost of taking something that does not belong to you. Thai film with subtitles.

It's one of the more enjoyable dark comedies I've seen.

A wry crime comedy that works because of its humor.

A step up from the flawed but brilliant Fun Bar Karaoke, Ruang Talok 69 is even darker, funnier and complex than its predecessor. Lalita Panyopas is brilliant as the lead, with the right balance of horrified confusion and distanced apathy and Ratanaruang manages to incorporate the films themes into the larger sociopolitical concerns surrounding the Thai economic bust.

This was a pretty good Thai flick... you gotta love The Sundance and Festival Channels... I have no idea what the significance is with the title as it has nothing to do with porn. Has anyone else out there seen this?

I don't think that I will be watching this one.

A social commentary on the destructive nature of the 'money' culture, set in the after math of the 1998 'Asian Contigation' that brought down the Thai economy. Tum (the beautiful Lalita Panyopas) the protagonist comes to terms with her moral self over the value of money after a series of gruesome episodes of blood letting (with bodies being piled up in her apartments), all of it stemming from a case of mistaken numbering on her apartment door (the title). The characters are great with hilarious performances filled with black humor.

This is awesome. The cinematography is minimal and understated, but does absolutely everything it needs to. Lalita is captivating as the timid and disconnected Tum who can only think one step at a time in response to the chaos of the characters that surround her. To call it a Thai "Fargo" is admittedly accurate, but does it a disservice. It's Tarantino without the inflated ego. It's a little bit dark, and sad, and hilarious, and will stay with you long after you've seen it. i loved it. Go get it.

I can see Pen-ek's potential brimming over in this movie. He eventually puts the pieces together in The Last Life in the Universe, but here he's very raw and requires some serious fine-tuning. The characters are insufferable assholes, and if they'd simply mind their own business, this movie would be twenty minutes long. There's no atmospheric presence of gangsters or doom either, even though the story would indicate otherwise. However, the story, despite being terribly linear, is interesting and keeps things from getting too boring. The director gets points for his low-grade, omnipresent style as well, from his choices in color to the fluidity of the final product.

I have a recurring nightmare. Let me share it with you.
In the nightmare, the director Hal Hartley is on my TV screen, only it is not Hal Hartley, but a steroid-laden musclebound version of the man, more Hulk Hogan than Hal Hartley. HH glares at me through the screen. Sweat drips from his muscles. "Hartleymania is running wild!" he roars. "It's in your children, it's in your film festivals, it's taking over the world!" And a muscular arm bursts through the screen and pulls me through.
Invariably I wake up screaming. And Hartleymania is here, coupled with the content of another indie film mainstay, the ultraviolence bequeathed us by Q. Tarantino. It's in the intentionallly awful acting, the awkward staging, the flat imagery, the crummy digital photography. Thanks, Hal Hartley.
Luckily, Ratanaruang improved by leaps and bounds in "Last Life in the Universe".

With this movie Pen Eke confirm once again that he is certainly the best Thai director ever !

Like Thailand is known for its beaches not for its cinema, but this movie, really is a big fat WOW!

I just rented this because the cover was interesting. It was a bit slow paced in spots but I think it added to the feel of the movie. Dark humor, interesting characters. Not a fan of the ending, but it was still good.
