So happy to see Apichatpong win!
This is great, great news. How exciting. I MIGHT be able to see Uncle Boonmee in theaters, now! ;) Savvy
I’m so psyched for Apichatpong. I wonder if this will earn him a bunch of new fans. You think this gives it a better shot at a US theatrical run?
I still have to wait until some time next year to see it probably, but at least now I will likely be able to see Joe’s film in theaters. Thrilled that he won.
Going to the BFI talk with AW on Tuesday – will be via skype, due to troubles in Thailand. But will be a chance to ask producers about UK release.
Sounds like it didn’t pick up US distribution, I really hope it does eventually… looks incredible
It’s always nice to be surprised! Can’t wait to see Uncle Boonmee but I wonder when or if the US will acquire rights.
Mathieu Amalric was named Best Director at Cannes while Arnaud Desplechin has never won an award at the festival. Discuss.
