Words cannot adequately describe just how weird a film Tears of the Black Tiger is. It’s a deliriously bizarre Thai western that's like a cross between a proper 'B' western, a Bollywood epic (it uses weird pinks and blues and washed out colours, as well as Songs At Bizarre Moments) and a Sam Peckinpah movie (lots of lovingly photographed graphic, bloody violence). The plot is very much the stuff of ‘B’ westerns. A fabled gunslinger (the Black Tiger) pines for his childhood sweetheart , and she is engaged to be married to his archenemy. Any one of the film’s strange elements, (the washed-out colour scheme, the graphic violence, the weird songs) would normally be enough to make this stand out. But the fact that this film combines all three and even throws in a gun slinging midget for good measure marks it out as a film not to be missed. (M. Turner, View London)
