  • Tears of the Black Tiger

    2000. Thailand. Written and directed by Wisit Sasanatieng. With Chartchai Ngamsan, Stella Malucchi, Supakorn Kitsuwon. Inspired by classic Westerns and romantic dramas, this Thai-spiced “Spaghetti” Western, about the impossible love of a governor’s daughter for the bandit nicknamed the Black Tiger, adds a gorgeous soundtrack to the requisite shoot-outs, broken-hearted cowboys, and beautiful women. The film’s faux-hand-tinted, supersaturated palette emphasizes the nostalgic atmosphere, in a unique homage to the larger-than-life Thai Western genre. Courtesy Magnolia Pictures. In Thai; English subtitles. 104 min.
