Cemetery of Splendour ★★★★

"i've touched way too many penises in my life."

loveliest moments here are when Weerasethakul flattens reality with the spectral dimension that usually assumes a more present, neon form in his movies... and yet, i'd be lying if i said i didn't miss that pronounced approach to the supernatural. still, what a delight. few films have ever been so palpably suspended by the past and present. hard to ignore how this seems to uncannily anticipate the recent Thai coup, which went down after this wrapped.
