Cam2Cam with Soisson In Bangkok!
CAM2CAM starts with a VERY long opening scene, apparently based on a short film shown at Cannes and picked up by Raimund (Kill 'Em All) Huber for expansion. Reworking that into a nearly 25 minute sequence, we see a woman that starts flirting online with another woman, only to discover that things aren't quite as they seem and her head is not long for her body...and that kicks off the rest of the film as her sister travels to Bangkok to FIND HER HEAD! At one point a character asks, "who goes all the way around the world to find a head???" and yeah, that definitely is a good question, but hey, this was a strong start. Some genuine suspense gets kicked in the keys by utterly ridiculous and not in a good way "cyber tech" that is livened up by a cock waggling mime. Though there is probably a great description of what I like about Soisson directed movies, you don't know what the best part is until you type COCK WAGGLING MIME!
It's on streaming now, and while it's hard to recommend unless you are a Soissonaphile (!!!), DTV fans will recognize his style right away and might find a few scenes as memorable as I did. If nothing else, watch the opening scene that recreates the short film, it's pretty entertaining. If any film screams "VENGEANCE IS HUNTING FOR HEAD IN BANGKOK...from the director of PULSE 3!!" it is CAM2CAM. So, Soissonaphiles line up!
