6ixtynin9

DVD Review by David Blackwell

DETAILS: 118 minutes, original Thai trailer, previews

STUDIO: Palm Pictures

RELEASE DATE: 1-11-2005

ANALYSIS: 6ixtynn9 is an interesting dark comedy from Thailand. It begins with Tum. She gets laid off from her job and she accidentally receives a box of noodles containing $25,000. The cash is meant as a bribe (from local Thai boxing gangsters) to be sent to another apartment in the building. Tum tries to hold onto the money and the body count starts rising. It all starts with two henchmen who dropped it off at the wrong door. They don't believe her when she says she hasn't seen it and she kills them in self-defense after they find the money. She first tries to tell the police about it, but she is worried she will end up in jail. The more she tries to hold onto the money, the more bodies that show up in her apartment that she has to get rid of.

The humor among all the madness in Tum's day is what makes 6ixtynin9 really work as a movie. The only thing that annoyed was Tum's annoying friend. She got on my nerves where I could stand every other character in 6ixtynin9.  It is definitely one I would want to watch again.

VIDEO/AUDIO: 6ixtynin9 is presented in 1.85:1 Anamorphic Widescreen. Colors are OK, while blacks sometime lack good detail. Pixelation is present in smoke. Heavy grain shows up in nighttime scenes and scenes with very little light. Image detail is OK, but you can see the image blurs during motion when you pause the movie.

6ixtynin9 can be heard in Thai 2.0 with English subtitles. dialogue, sounds, and music come across clearly, but it's nothing stellar.

EXTRAS: The only extras are the original Thai trailer for 6ixtynin9 and previews for two other Palm Pictures titles (with LAST LIFE IN THE UNIVERSE being one of them).

FINAL ANALYSIS: Due to the transfer, I say 6ixtynin9 is only good for a rental. It is an enjoyable foreign gem.
