Very cool dream like short that makes me want to play with a 35mm myself.
A blur of images become their own memories and (sort of) find their own rhythm. I really like what he did with the sound about halfway through and the ending was mesmerizing. Also: "FREE MY DAD".
AMAZING MUSIC and MESSAGE. We do live the dream inside the dream, may we be swept by the radiance of the divine - it's that BEAUTIFUL. I don't want to be a pig in a CAGE no more!
Memories are made of this…
one of the most beautiful & poignant shorts i've ever had the pleasure of seeing. some absolutely brilliant touches, like the reprising of the man walking his dog next to the little girl on a bicycle, as well as the gorgeous and colorful staccato-like montages of 35mm film.
História zero, edição boa.
Nice little film. Every time my mind started to wander, it pulled me back and showed me something new.
I can only wish for so many pillows.
I think there is some things that are interesting in this short but my main feeling is: so what? It's just a guy walking his dog that gets interesting footage because of the camera.
This is how to make a moody-flick.
Rural-urban; politics-poetry; time-timelessness; nationalism-nature; no narrative???
Interesting experimentation with image and sound - not so different from his usual but it gives one moments to reflect, not dominating your conscious. Like looking at paintings without sacrificing integral components of moving images.
Why read about it? Just watch it w/ an open mind.
Limitations as directions not restrictions.
Sell. Out. (don't blame him though)
i found the lomo kino effects pretty exhausting to watch during the whole time
Steven, I have to disagree with you. The texture and atmosphere of this film is really quite nice. Tropical Malady is my favorite of his!
rubbish. i love his 2 other films - tropical malady and uncle boonmee - but this is a half arsed piece of film-art that shows little imagination. 3 out of 10 for effort
I want my own LomoKino efforts to be as good as this. Seriously.
Didn't find it much of a testament to the lomokino or for that matter much of a film. Devoid of ideas but with a handful of arresting images doesn't really add up to much. Critics seem to give Weerasethakul the same 'everything he does is brilliant' treatment they once gave to Godard with about the same hit to miss quotient he had as well. Mind you I am looking forward to his new feature.
