"Stylish, badass neo-noir cinema" - The Playlist 

New York, NY - September 17, 2012 - Kino Lorber is proud to announce the Blu-ray and DVD release of Headshot, a dark, existential thriller from Thai new wave director Pen-ek Ratanaruang.
Headshot comes to Blu-ray and DVD on October 2nd, with a SRP of $34.95 for the Blu-ray and $29.95 for the DVD. Bonus features include the trailer, an English-dubbed audio track (in addition to the original Thai with English subtitles), and a stills gallery.Headshot will also be available digitally on iTunes and other online VOD channels.

Headshot is also opening theatrically on September 28th, at New York's Cinema Village and the Grand Illusion Cinema in Seattle, WA.

Posted ImageThis disorienting game of cat and mouse is played out in present-day Thailand, where corruption runs rampant and the good die young. When Tul, a straight-laced cop, is blackmailed by a powerful politician he soon becomes disillusioned by the state of human nature and, in his vengeful condition, is recruited to become a hitman for an iconoclastic group aimed at eliminating those who are above the law.

But when a devastating blow turns Tul's vision upside-down, he finds himself engulfed in doubt, unaware of whether the condition is medical or a result of karmic retribution.

Enriched with social commentary that confronts the modern penal system, Headshotis a smart, ethically oriented update on a classic genre. Rendered in the hands of a director who transcends convention, the film becomes a stylishly executed Buddhist neo-noir.
