when two films at the multiplex center on transvestites and this isn't even including Hairspray which is also showing here. As far as I know Thailand is the only film industry around that has a genre around this subject and every year there seems to be a number of these that surface and do reasonably well at the box office. I am not quite sure the reason why though there is a rather large and very visable population of transvestites/transexuals all over Bangkok. The two films are Kungfu Tootsie and The Odd Couple. The latter stars Mok Jokmok as a transvestite helping out a Japanese cop find a serial killer. It has to be extremely politically incorrect and funny I would bet. Unfortunately, I got wacked by the flu almost as soon as I touched ground here and have spent much of the last week dosing myself with various medications and getting loads of sleep.
In the meantime, here are some pages of old Thai film posters. The book I scanned them from was all in Thai so I am not even sure what years they are from but I would guess the 60's and 70's due to the style. Like the Japanese and Korean film posters from that time they are hand drawn and full of detail.
