Apichatpong Weerasethakul - Syndromes and a Century / Tropical Malady

Probably most famous for Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives

i should not use words. just be patient and enjoy. below this clip is a whole film -- Tropical Malady -- highly highly highly recommended

From Syndromes and a Century (2006)
you really should watch this whole film
he always does a great job with "acts" or "parts" also:
nice tongue-in-cheek-simultaneous-celebration of Thai formalities 

The whole film Tropical Malady (2003)
absolutely breathtaking
so many nature sounds and rain sounds and becalming conversations
and ambiguously dreaming sequences of contenting togetherness
as if people would be so inviting. hanging in a hammock. Ha!
To live. Ha!
Or to be. Ha!

Breathing. Beasts.

This film, if you make it all the way through to the ending,
will devour you
and regurgitate you more alive than before
like a trip

vague gay love story surrealism for the first half/unrequited
vague hero myth story egoism for the second half/elliptical
