Brendan's rating of the film Tropical Malady

Weerasethakul's love story told halfway twice is one of cinema's recent masterpieces. The slowly emerging sexuality of the characters feels less like a rejection of falsely told tales than an attempt to render and discover his emotions onscreen. The binaries here become more complex than any other Weerasethakul film in consideration of societies current binary approach to sexuality.
