Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives (2010)
Dir. Apichatpong Weerasethakul
To think that the buzz surrounding this film at Cannes indicates that Apichatpong has perhaps topped himself, well, that makes for one impossibly excited filmgoer. Just thought I’d share, and wait with bated breath its U.S. premiere.
Until then, once again, I can’t recommend its short precursor enough. A Letter To Uncle Boonmee.
UPDATE: Uncle Boonmee has won the Palm d’Or, from a jury headed by Tim Burton of all people. Weerasethakul is officially on the world’s stage now, and it’s safe to say that no matter what the film plays as, they certainly picked the most audacious talent of the bunch. Let the U.S. distribution come sooner than later…
