    Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives

    ★★★★

    Weird, slow, quiet, hypnotic, strange, and haunting art film from Thailand. The moment when the Monkey Ghost climbed up the stairs, my heart paused briefly in fright.

    It’s good to be reminded how amazing certain films really are. This one starts with awe and wonderment and doesn’t stop delivering. One of Miyazaki’s greatest adventures.

    Everyone talks about THE SHINING, but this is really what it’s like to be quarantined too long. Particularly if you’re stuck inside with an amphibious baby, a dead tree on your nightstand, a clay animation worm in a cabinet, and a miniature theatre with a large-cheeked singing & dancing woman in your radiator.  

    I’m not making this up. 

    The ultimate midnight movie, a nightmare, and a masterpiece.

    I love this movie so much, and keep coming back to it. It’s an ocean of joy. I still have no idea what it means...but it may just be a key to the heavens and the earth. Penguins mean something. They are important.
