  • Memoria

    Memoria

    ★★★★½

    Apichatpong films has always been so surreal to me, they always have this striking contrast; on the one side, you have a personal film with incredibly mundane and lingering moments about every day existence, but on the other, you have a socio-political commentary of the community he's trying to portray; personally, I tend to relate to the former.

    ★★★★★

The thought of you being successful, the thought of you having that girl. The thought of your parents being proud. The thought of you being ok. All of it are just a figment of your imagination. A fever dream. Something that’s so gracious, palpable, and profoundly beautiful. 

    You’re thinking of ending things. You’re thinking if life is…
