Bad Genius (2017)
AroView: A sensation in its native Thailand, this is a super-stylish black comedy/thriller inspired by a real life scandal of large-scale exam fraud. It takes the premise to the level of full-blown heist thriller courtesy of a whip-smart script, some directorial genius and a totally bad (in a good way) central performance from teen-model turned actress Chutimon Chuengcharoensukying.
“The film is executed with GHD studio’s trademark technical slickness and hip style, but director Nattawut Poonpiriya also offers subtle yet stinging insight into Thailand’s class inequalities and corrupt school system.” ~Variety
