How do you feel to see things upside down?
At first, I was really frustrated. But now, I think it is the best thing that happened to me in last several years.
In the past, I used to see things like everyone sees, just skim through them because everything looks familiar to me. But now I have to really look at the things and people and that make me to see things more clearly.

Thai cop becomes a hit man after the death of his girl friend
"Headshot" is a neo-noir through and through and quite good. It's best not to reveal the plot. The main character is a cop who becomes a hit man after his girl friend's death. The story is told out of time sequence, and it works that way. The photography is appropriately disorienting, not to mention that every so often we see things as the hero sees them, which is upside down, after he receives a shot to his head.
The movie reminds me of Dick Powell's disorientation in "Murder My Sweet". Here it's worse and pervasive.
The two female stars in this movie are very beautiful, and they can act.
Noir fans will like this picture.
