Uncle Boonmee Who Remembers His Past Lives


Dir. Apichatpong Weerasethakul (2010).
The acme of no-budget, Buddhist-animist, faux-naïve, avant-pop magic neorealism, this a movie in which conversing with the materialized spirits of the dead and watching the so-called living on TV exist on the same astral plane; mysterious and matter-of-fact, cosmic and humble, it asks only a measure of Boonmeevian acceptance.
