    Good stuff, and a major plug for the Isaan Record- a web site I believe deserves a lot more attention and traffic.

    living in this country represents powerlessness,
    It's all a fantasy -- enabled by people stupid enough to believe in fantasies.

    the film looks at the city with the eyes of sadness.
    It's been that way for centuries. Isan people don't understand real happiness.

    He's another deluded filmmaker idiot. This will never happen in a caste society. Foreigners are only here to be exploited -- not learned from.

      Do not agree with yer last two points tex, but... We do live in a land of fantasy, and ghosts and spirits. And 'powerlessness'. And acceptance of such.

            Apichatpong Weerasethakul hopes some time abroad will give him a clearer perspective on Thailand.


            Regardless, critics believe his films are political. His latest film revolves around Thai soldiers suffering from narcolepsy, and a Thai female nurse who is a medium. In the Guardian
