Glór Film Club presents Tears of the Black Tiger

Directed by Wisit Sasanatieng, 1999, Thailand
An Eastern western? A gay satire? Or a boy's own adventure? One thing is certain: this is a film like nothing else you've ever seen. 'Tears of the Black Tiger' brings together the western, the all-stops-out Bollywood epic and the popular Thai movie genre of 50 years ago. One man's popular retro entertainment is another man's laughable kitsch, and yet another man's knowing postmodernism. You decide.
