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.

A cop turned into a hit-man, gets shot in the head and sees the world upside down.
As soon as I learn about this movie, immediately I remembered "Memento" (2000), a movie I never could figure out if I like or dislike. This time with "Headshot", a cop turned into a hit man, I got that old feeling, when a crime movie doesn't need to move at fast pace, or big arguments, but a real comprehension of his characters, and that is what this movie offers, it builds up little by little to the point that I felt as if I knew "Tul" in real life. Unfortunately I predicted two of the most important elements of the movie. I could complain about the ending, but I won't, because it doesn't matter who did the final deed, we are just told that when you are good but play for the bad, there's no redemption, sometimes just a place to hide. On this review you won't find any spoiler watched and judge yourself, I give it six out of ten because the ending fill on the inadequacies of the film, as always, this is a film just for cinephiles.
