Kongkiat Komesiri's gory crime thriller Slice (Cheun) continues to collect accolades and positive reviews. I just noticed that Maggie Lee of The Hollywood Reporter caught Slice in Rotterdam, and her review is now posted.
Here's the intro:
In the slasher-thriller Slice, a cop-turned-convict tracks down a serial killer by delving into his own troubled childhood memories. Genre buffs in particular will be aroused by the high camp quotient of the gender-bending twists in Wisit Sasanatieng's (The Unseeable) baroque story idea, which is a cut above mainstream Thai horror. Direction by Kongkiat Khomsiri (Art of the Devil 2) backs this up with sharp visuals, stylized grotesquerie and a touch of delicacy in depicting teenage angst and gay sexual awakening.

Slice is set for the Hong Kong International Film Festival, is a top nominee for the Subhanahongsa Awards, recently won best editing from the Bangkok Critics Assembly as well as director and editing honors at the Starpics Awards.
