Magnolia Pictures has officially announced that it will release on Blu-ray M.L. Pundhevanop Dhewakul's The Outrage a.k.a At the Gate of the Ghost (2011). The release will be available for purchase online and in stores across the nation on April 16th.
In this worthy adaptation of the Japanese film Rashômon, a young monk leaves town to seek his father's counsel after being disturbed by murder trial testimony of the bandit Singh Khan, the wife of the deceased warlord, and a shaman who conjures up the warlord's spirit. Along the way, he encounters a poor man who testified at the trial, and the two take refuge in an abandoned burial tunnel during a storm. They are met by an old beggar who joins in their lively conversation about the trial. In vivid detail, each story is witnessed on screen as it's told from the bandit's, the wife's and the warlord's perspectives, all riddled with bias and personal agenda. In the end, the young monk is left to determine what meaning is of true consequence not only in this murder trial, but in choosing to continue on his monastic path. Starring Ananda Everingham (Legend of the Tsunami Warrior), Mario Maurer (The Love of Siam), Chermarn Bonnyasak (The Love of Siam), Phongpat Wachirabanjhong (Chocolate) and Phettai Wongkamlao aka Mum Jokmok (Ong Bak Franchise, The Protector) and Dom Hetrakul (Bangkok Dangerous).
