Even for a filmmaker who takes pride in scaling the fantastic down to everyday proportions, there's such a thing as going too slight.
Weerasethakul's films have been hailed for their hypnotic mix of natural splendor and supernatural mythology, though this one is a bit lumpy by his standards.
Apichatpong resists control and eschews close-ups, maintaining as always a Zen-like approach to his material.
Compared with Weerasethakul's acclaimed features, it feels cobbled together and improvised, which for the most part it was.
It's not painful to endure or anything (in part because it's so short), but to borrow the title of one of last year's celebrated Cannes premieres: This is not a film.
Miniature rumination on reincarnation and romance overstays its welcome even at 59 minutes.
Deceptively simple film becomes a strange, meditative look into Thai culture and folklore.
Indulges the writer-director's taste for near-catatonic pacing combined with supernatural comings and goings.
A tone poem on the theme of "acting out dialogue".
Its running time may make it more digestible than some of Weerasethakul's more ambitious pieces, although it straddles the line between full-feature and his short films and experimental work quite beautifully.
The ideas here were far more interestingly rehearsed in movies like Tropical Malady and his Palme-winning Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives. A diverting footnote to the main body of work, no more than that.
A 59-minute offshoot of a shelved film project, the pic plays like a bonus track to the Thai auteur's Palme d'Or winner, Uncle Boonmee.
Let's be honest, this is not a film, it is more like a thing, an object - it just stays there, inert. It doesn't say anything, it doesn't become anything, it only exists, and with only a bit less than an hour of running time it overstays its welcome and you can pay attention to it or not.
