Tropical Malady

This beautiful, near-psychedelic Thai film touches on some mighty unconventional topics. It's initially a contemporary, gay-themed romance between a soldier and a country boy. In the film's second half, however, it spins off into fantastic territory when our soldier wanders into the woods looking for the creature responsible for killing his would-be boyfriend's cattle. Apparently, the story is loosely based on a Thai folk tale. Romantic, spiritual and certainly offbeat, this foreign-born fairy tale is a hot ticket for select audiences. In Thai with English subtitles. 118 minutes Unrated.
