You know that feeling when you just wake up and you aren't quite sure if you're still dreaming or not? That's what watching an Apichatpong Weerasethakul film is like.

"Why do they need so many mirrors?"

"Hunger for Heaven will lead you to Hell."

"At the heart of the kingdom, other than the rice fields, there is nothing."

"Before it disappears it bulges and changes shape, as if it knows, that when it falls, it would be an astounding sight to behold."
