Director: Pen-Ek Ratanaruang
Year Released: 1999
Rating: 2.5

A young woman is laid off from work and in need of money, so when God sends her a gift (a box of money on her front doorstep), various gangsters and curious types show up at her door and get killed. It isn't exactly the critique of capitalism in Thailand I predicted from the first five minutes - Ratanaruang's affinity is closer to Tarantino and Peter Jackson, to gore and comedy. The script gives out towards the end, where the woman develops a conscience and it becomes a half-hearted moral lesson, like: 'you shouldn't kill half a dozen people for money' or something to that effect. It's visceral and well filmed, but insubstantial.
