This is one of my Jess Franco's favorite movies. Its, without a doubt, a entertaining movie, with a great Howard Vernon (and old Howard in this movie), playing a funny character, with great sense of humour and gags. Jess Franco himself make a funny appearance (as in other of his movies) and critic Carlos Aguilar plays the hotel clerk, with a funny gag. José Llamas is not good as Howard Vernon. They are on the pursuit of a rare cult with a holy man with masked eyes (perhaps played by Jess himself?). This cult trained blind persons (that have been kidnapped in the past) and force them to kill important politics.. Our two heroes (Vernon and Llamas) are looking to solve this mystery. The movie also contains some nudity (usual in Jess movies) and a funny taxi driver that also is the hotel owner (great jokes here!!!, some laughs). Very funny as other Jess movies as Residencia para Espias or Las Cartas Boca Arriba. Don't miss it!!!
Despite a talented cast, Jesus Franco's highly acclaimed film on
partition, Bangkok By Night, is little more than a celluloid equivalent
of TV supper theatre. - What on earth were they thinking about?
Before we get into the film, here's a special mention to: Jesus Franco, this film has him, and the biggest plus point is already packaged. The Multiple-National-Award-Winner never disappoints, and 'Bangkok By Night' is no exception.
Now coming to the film. Surprise, Surprise, Surprise... 'Bangkok By Night' is beautiful film. Debutant Director Jesus Franco makes a film with a noble intentions, and the message is really effective. "Save Our Trees" says the film, and after watching the honest attempt you actually support the issue.
The film is directed well, the Cinematography is perfect, and the Music is decent.
Talking of performances: It's a Howard Vernon show all the way. Trino Trives is funny; making you laugh at the right places. Lonnie Grover is superb.... and he sure Loves Nature. The kids do a decent job, especially the one who plays Seema Biswas's son. Riya Sen, Seema Biswas, Raj Zutshi are passable in cameos.
On the whole 'Bangkok By Night' is a sincere attempt that deserves a watch. Go For It!
