  2. Nachtreich's rating of the film 36

    ☆☆ e mezzo. Peccato porcodio, carinissimo.

  3. saltwater's rating of the film 36

    Does the ephemeral quality of digital technology make it any less meaningful than analog? Does it really matter? This film explores these questions in a series of 36 meditative, beautiful scenes.

  4. mullokian's rating of the film 36

    I didn't even think I'd watch this to its end, yet here I am still haunted by it 24 hours later. Slight of concept, yet surprisingly resonant.

  5. Ben Dooley's rating of the film 36

    A simple but beautifully constructed romantic short feature on the role of technology in our lives (particularly in relation to memory). It’s touching particularly in the elements beyond the couple, such as the mother who does not receive a photograph of her dead daughter and the woman who is unsure whether she wants her fixed hard-drive full of photos, for reasons left mysteriously unclear. Thoughtful and touching…

  6. Max Seqgar's rating of the film 36

    Do not worry if you don't get it, or find it too boring; Thai indie films are not even popular in Thailand. Still, if you take this film with patience, you are in for a nice treat... different from Weerasethekul's meditative explorations; more mundane, even more humane.

  7. Squashua's rating of the film 36

    Less about story or narrative and more about capturing 36 moments across time in unusual spaces and allowing them to breathe for a couple of minutes. Simple on the surface, there's a lot of intelligent & enthusiastic photography work embedded here with the opening and closing thirds inside the ruined hotel being particularly captivating. Learning that, despite technology, not all memories can be captured forever.

  8. Edward Morris's rating of the film 36

    languid…dreamy…full of chances forgone.

  9. Sprungler's rating of the film 36

    Persistence of memory takes a new form under this rigid yet informal presentation of the digital art project. Good aesthetics but not impressing in any other chapter; however, if you're up for a lay back film at the end of a stressful day, this would be a good choice.

  10. raggiodisole's rating of the film 36

    For sure a grower. started of thinking that the plot device was a limitation, but as the film moved into the second half it became clear that it was a transport, that it carried and reinforced the central themes. Not so sure about the persistent music, however

  11. deniz's rating of the film 36

    The movie is lovely but something super annoying happens at minute 47... the image remains stuck for about 4 minutes while the audio keeps going (without subtitles).. please Mubi team fix this problem! I really want to see what happens in those 4 minutes!

  12. Johnny Mislow's rating of the film 36

    Seems so pointless at times. Nawapol's second movie is such a greater contribution.

  13. Nadin's rating of the film 36

    A strong debut feature. 36 is a subtle, but powerful story about photography and memory, and perhaps a bit more. Read more on my blog: http://tinyurl.com/l5jb8vb

  14. εξώτερο Διάστημα's rating of the film 36

    it was a cute but somewhat brainless film. but i liked that idea that people put part of their past on somehing physical, a hdd, and then think that if they destroy or forget or ignore that hdd, it is as if the materiality of the hdd will erase the materiality of those events they want to forget. they first stock their memories, so that they don't have to remember them in detail, bec a pic, which is very precise and

  15. Aaken's rating of the film 36

    A beautiful film structured on the 36 negative film. Each sequence is like a still with caption. What is admirable is that director Nawapol Thamrongrattanarit manages to tell many stories using ellipses and off camera dialogues. Nothing is showed but through the few images that we catch, a whole film is running in our head. Hauntingly poetic.
