Critic Reviews for Cemetery of Splendor
What other filmmaker could create a tissue of metaphor, almost musical, from the hum of rotary objects?
From the Thai arthouse director Apichatpong Weerasethakul, whose Uncle Boonmee won the Palme d'Or at Cannes a few years ago, comes another strange swooning dream, Cemetery of Splendour.
Given the cultural boundaries, there is much in the film that we may never fully grasp, but the less we're told, the more were sucked in by the film's hypnotic, ever-expanding aura of mystery.
If you haven't seen a Weerasethakul film yet, here's a good opportunity, but leave your expectations at the door. There's no one like him.
Audience Reviews for Cemetery of Splendor
What could be more ironic than a film about soldiers falling asleep being such an insufferable drag to watch? - and Mr. Weerasethakul proves once again what a pretentious fraud he is, throwing just about any crap on the screen and knowing that his fans will love it no matter what.
