  • This dreamlike journey into the imagination is never predictable.

  • It is an engrossingly strange, confident leap down the conceptual rabbit hole, and a very accomplished piece of film-making.

  • This Thai drama begins with the testimony of a survivor of the Thammasat massacre of protesting students by the government in 1976, and spirals into something woozy and strange, an investigation of the process of film-making itself.

  • The movie is hypnotic to watch and wonder at - even if these filmmaking Thais don't seem to bind and that is work which must be done by their audiences.

    Jun 15, 2017 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • "By the Time It Gets Dark" has clearly been thought through, but it's so cryptic that it cries out for, if not perfect explanations, perhaps footnotes. It's so conceptual that it offers little for those not in sync.

  • You could be forgiven for thinking that while all this is going on, nothing at all seems to happen - it's a film, a rather gorgeous one, of glances and ephemera and delicate metaphors.
