Lalita Panyopas is quite adept at playing a woman who somehow manages to remain sympathetic throughout her increasingly Kafkaesque situation. Her realistic performance grounds a film that sometimes tries too hard for laughs. "6ixtynin9" Lalita Panyopas is quite adept at playing a woman who somehow manages to remain sympathetic throughout her increasingly Kafkaesque situation. Her realistic performance grounds a film that sometimes tries too hard for laughs. "6ixtynin9" avoids the requisite action scenes between the criminal naif and the criminal proper by sidestepping the genre convention of skipping town to avoid capture. This is admirable because we've seen too many films that ditch their narratives in favor of spectacle. But it does take a lot of contrivances in the screenplay to keep that woman in her apartment. At the onset, "6ixtynin9" could've been the Thai "Thelma & Louise"("Tum & Jim) had Tum been less coy about the money. When Jim(Tasanawalai Ongarittichai) has her heart broken by a gigolo, the lost chance to emancipate themselves from men rears its head. Instead of a road movie, we get a well-photographed violent black comedy that's not too violent and not always funny. But it works because Panyopas plays it straight all the way through. Expand
