‘Soi Cowboy’ filmmaker dies in Vietnam (video)

soi_cowboy_2Joseph Lang, a British writer and movie producer famous for the 2008 movie “Soi Cowboy”, a thoughtful and disturbing meditation on the Thai experience of globalisation and its complex relationship with foreigners, was found dead outside a medical center in Ho Chi Minh City on June 28, Thanh Nien News reported.

The cause of death is not yet known and Lang’s UK-based family is waiting for the results of a post-mortem examination. Joseph Lang was reportedly staying in Vietnam for a couple of months to teach English and has also been working on a new movie feature.

His movie “Soi Cowboy”, named after the notorious red light district in eastern Bangkok, has been acknowledged by many critics as a brilliant, though provocative portrait of a dull European man that engages with a young Thai woman in a nightmarishly ambiguous setting. The movie, directed by Thomas Clay, has been staged at the Cannes Film Festival 2008 and received much acclaim.
