The true genius of ‘Bad Genius’

Nicholas Chan

ONE of the most talked about Southeast Asian films in 2017 is definitely Nattawut Poonpiriya’s ‘Bad Genius’. It is now the highest-grossing Thai film in Malaysia, China and Hong Kong, earning a global box office total of US$42 million.

I don’t intend to produce a film review here but for those who haven’t watch it, the film is about how high school genius, Lynn (Chutimon Chuengcharoensukying), has gone from running a sophisticated exam-cheating syndicate in her school to undertaking a Mission Impossible-esque cheating operation of what appears to be a SAT test analogue (called STIC in the film) in Australia.
