Film Trailer for Thai Noir Thriller Headshot

Headshot (2011)

We recently stumbled upon a film trailer for the Thai film Headshot, adapted from the noir thriller Fon Tok Kuen Fa ("Rain Falling Up the Sky") by Win Leowarin.

The film is set in present day Thailand, a country rife with corruption. Tul, a straight-laced cop, is blackmailed by a powerful politician and framed for a crime he did not commit. Disillusioned and vengeful, he is soon recruited to become a hitman for a shadowy group aimed at eliminating those who are above the law.

Then one day Tul is shot in the head during an assignment. He wakes up after a three-month coma to find that he sees everything upside down — literally. Unaware of whether the condition is medical or a result of karmic retribution, Tul begins to have second thoughts about his profession.

But when he tries to quit, roles are reversed and the hunter becomes the hunted. Then he meets a girl that turns his world even more upside down. Can Tul find redemption from the violence that continues to haunt him?

Kino Lorber picked up the US distribution rights following the film's showing at the Toronto International Film Festival, but we are unaware of any specific release dates.

Watch the trailer below, in Thai with English subtitles, which includes several short NSFW scenes.
