Cemetery of Splendour
Cemetery of Splendour (รักที่ขอนแก่น) is much sweeter than Weerasethakul's other movies, or at least it seemed so to me. Or maybe I mean that it is warmer or kinder. Obviously, if you aren't into Weerasethakul you won't be into this – it is slow and thoughtful. I really, really liked this one, though. Indeed, much more than the earlier films of his that I've seen. It's beautiful.
