Wisit Sasanatieng's self-consciously campy Thai western (2000) opens in the U.S. seven years late and six minutes shorter, but it's still an enjoyably energetic genre romp. Staged in both open spaces and painted expressionist sets, it's a classic doomed romance between a wealthy young woman and a peasant boy who becomes an outlaw (the Black Tiger of the title). Its giddy stylistics include extravagant use of color and rapid montage, said to be a direct homage to legendary Thai independent Ratana Pestonji. In Thai with subtitles. 97 min.
