Boonmee has some of the most heartfelt acting, intimate writing, and surreal visuals I’ve ever witnessed. If only I knew what it all meant.
Gonna say I watched a special edition of this cause of the frog out there constantly screaming in my backyard.
Despite not knowing anything about Thai mythology or beliefs it's easy to be amazed by this weird and wonderful film. Beautifully shot!
Not for everyone. Pure Art-house. A beautiful, slow, quiet film. Has a subtle opening that is absolute perfection
Imprevisible, fascinante, extraordinaria película
Great cinematography and some spooky looking shots that startled me more than they should have
Insanely slow paced but rather unsettling and unique enough that if you’re interested, try it
It’s less a narrative than a lived experience. Probably needs to be seen in a theater to have its full impact.
I love art films but this one lost me story wise. But the cinematography was extremely beautiful with a lifelike slowness in the scenes.
a beautiful dark and poetic, journey into the far ends of life and death. This film left a lasting mark on me.
