Apichatpong Weerasethakul: Tropical Malady

I saw ‘Syndromes and a Century’ at the cinema when it came out a while back but then didn’t get round to catching up on any of Weerasethakul’s back catalogue until a couple of weeks ago. I watched ‘Tropical Malady‘ and was utterly transported. It’s beautiful to look at, very moving, but mainly it contains images like nothing else I’ve ever seen on screen.

I watched the loosely related follow up ‘Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives’ last weekend, and again it’s a world unto itself. Like all my favourite directors Weerasethakul seems to conjure an entire reality in his films and it’s one well worth getting lost in.
