Opening in NYC: Wisit Sasanatieng's "Tears of the Black Tiger"
Finally, five long years after its premiere at the 2001 Cannes Film Festival, Tears of the Black Tiger, Wisit Sasanatieng's color-drunk, hyper-melodramatic evocation of Thailand's long forgotten cinematic past, is finally playing on the big screen in the U.S., courtesy of Magnolia Pictures, which rescued the film from the dusty, crowded Miramax vaults. It opened in New York yesterday at Film Forum. You can read my Meniscus Magazine review here.
