  • 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.

    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.
