review by
Mike Haberfelner

From the outside, the Motel Mistress looks like any other love hotel on the outskirts of town - but it's what happens behind closed doors that really matters: So meet Sopol (Surapol Poonpiriya), on the outside a guy as average as can be - but he really likes school girls, likes to take them to the motel with him promising money and then has his way with them - and this "way" goes beyond the purely sexual as he likes to inflict pain. Meet Laila (Prapamonton Eiamchan), the latest of a string of girls falling for him ... or has she? Meet Tul (Vasuphon Kriangprapakit), a former child star who has made a getaway from society and hides out here while trying (and arguably succeeding) to communicate with aliens. Meet Tot (Wissanu Likitsathaporn), a staffer at the motel who has long lost all interest in his job but has drillet peepholes into all the rooms to masturbate to the guests' lovemaking - but when he recognizes Tul, for whose safe return his mother (Chindarat Kasuya) is offering a healthy reward, he figures he has found a way out of his misery. And of course meet Vicky (Katareeya Theapchatri), Laila's best friend and partner in crime, who comes to Laila's rescue in pretty much the last minute, as the two girls have actually laid a trap for Sopol, who has hospitalized one of their friends. But then all these stories somehow intertwine in some bizarre fashion, suggesting that the Motel Mistress is more than it seems at first glance - and that might not be a good thing ...


There's no two ways about it, Motel Mist is a very unusual film: Sure, its story is made up from well-hung pulp mainstays with even a few porn elements thrown in (narrative elements that is, the film is not sexually explicit), but the way this is done is anything but trashy, but also not highbrow erotica glossy, or going the art-housey route of too much brainheavy symbolism, rather it presents us with a very fresh, very unusual, even weird look at things, obviously enjoying its play with genre elements and all the while furnishing the thing with a fittingly otherworldly atmosphere. Now this might not be a film for everyone, but if the slightly bizarre is yours, this one's pretty much a must.
