In an effort to add yet another title to my seemingly never-ending cinematic backlog, distributor Kino Lorber is bringing director Pen-ek Ratanaruang’s 2011 action flick “Headshot” to Region 1 DVD this autumn. To be perfectly honest, this one had fallen off my radar until just recently, so it’s nice to know the flick has garnered enough positive attention to warrant a Stateside release. Here’s hoping this one is worth the wait.

A synopsis, to refresh your memory:

Tul, a hitman, is shot in the head during one assignment. He wakes up after a two-month coma to find that he sees everything upside down, literally. He goes back to his job, but his new affliction doesn’t make things easy. Doubt starts to set in about what he does for living. But karma’s a bitch, and the past starts to catch up with him. Then he meets a girl who turns his world even more upside down. Plus, who was trying to kill him in the first place?

Look for “Headshot”, which stars Jayanama Nopachai and Sirin Horwang, to arrive on October 2nd, 2012. If you need a refresher course in “Headshot”, have a look at the trailer nestled below.
