    C'mon, icheckmovies, where's the love for this amazing film? I'm surprised at how few checks/comments this one has for a movie this beautiful and offbeat. 6 years 11 months ago

    The praise for this film is a complete mystery to me. The only elements that remotely piqued my interest were the trippy moments in the second half, but then I didn't feel the "mythical" ending was entirely successful anyway: it definitely verged on pretentious. The other 97% of the film is, to be frank, an absolute bore. A poor example of art-house cinema. 4 years 3 months ago

    It's hard to deny some of the mysterious-transcendent qualities of this film (similar to most of Weerasethakul's), but the second half is barely watchable. Definitely arthouse in a positive and negative meaning. 4 years 8 months ago
