The new film from Thai master and Palme d'Or winner Apichatpong Weerasethakul is at once a soothing lullaby, a film à clef, fragments from an unrealized project, and a fascinating experiment in collaboration.
Official Selection, Toronto International Film Festival 2012
This new film from the Palme d'Or–winning director of Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives continues to explore the themes that are essential to Apichatpong's films — reincarnation, the supernatural, his country's legacy of violence, and unabashed romantic love — within a gentle, almost plotless rumination set on the banks of the Mekong River. Combining wistful memories, a softly strummed flamenco guitar, and the occasional flesh-eating ghoul, Mekong Hotel is yet another boundary-pushing work from one of world cinema's most adventurous artists.
