The New York Asian Film Festival is back this year with one Thai film in the line-up: Panna Rittikrai's stunt extravaganza B.K.O: Bangkok Knockout (โคตรสู้ โคตรโส, Koht Soo Koht Soh).
Here's what the NYAFF folks have to say about it:
Tony Jaa’s mentor, Panna Rittikrai, will school you now. This exploitation stunt-tacular features all his best stuntmen and women unleashing muay thai, capoeira, dirt bike fu, shovel beatdowns, fights on fire, fights in the water, fights under trucks, fights in mid-air, and two back-to-back climactic smackdowns that have to be seen to be believed.
Bangkok Knockout is playing at 12:15pm on Saturday, July 2 and at midnight on Saturday, July 9 at the Walter Reade Theatre of the Film Society of Lincoln Center.
Courtesy of NYAFF and Variance Films, I had two pairs of tickets to give away. The operative word here now is had. They are gone. Better luck next year if you weren't fast enough on the draw to get them.
The New York Asian Film Festival runs from July 1 to 14 at the Lincoln Center and at the Japan Society.
