awesome. a truely horrific, graphic, gore-porn film, with literally bucket loads of blood and dismemberment.
but it is also so much more than that. the story is one of a screwed-up thai woman (buss) with schizophrenia, who chops up those who cross her and serves them up in noodle dishes. but the film successfully explores the way in which her illness effects her interpretation of the world around her, and looks into her broken childhood/upbringing and therefore the reasons behind her behaviour and illness. other reviewers have commented that it is disjointed and confusing, and the film does often jump between memories, reality and buss's delusional interpretation of the world - to my mind this brilliantly portrays/represents how screwed-up buss's mind/life is.
it really is very clever indeed, and has so much more depth than the sterile hollywood slasher films.
add to that the extra element of being filmed in Thailand, with sets and a cinema style never seen in western films, this has to be highly recommended if you like horror and a bit of depth to films.
