  1. Ratanaruang brings us close to Tum's personality, and his rigorous filming style carefully layers the plot while allowing us to contemplate the nature of greed and the cost of simply existing.
  2. Comically grotesque, strikingly filmed.
  3. 70
    Though overlong at two hours, 6ixtynin9—only the director's second outing (after 1997's spoofy" Fun Bar Karaoke')—is impressive for the tonal control Ratanaruang applies to his swerving scenario.
  4. Ingeniously engineered, self-consciously clever and directed with snazzy style, it's played as a violent black comedy with often-gruesome punch lines.
  5. Much of the film's appeal rests with Thai soap-opera actress Panyopas, whose bittersweet charm smoothes over the uglier aspects of Tum's spiral into crime.

    The film goes more and more off-kilter, with its jumble of black comedy and bloodshed and its mild-mannered protagonist embroiled in violent crime making it an unsophisticated foray into Coen brothers territory.
  7. 60
    This is a competently made film, with some wonderfully subdued camera work and very effective editing. 6ixtynin9 is a fun little film.

    Lalita Panyopas is quite adept at playing a woman who somehow manages to remain sympathetic throughout her increasingly Kafkaesque situation. 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. Collapse
