It's coming on three years since filmmaker Apichatpong Weerasethakul bewitched audiences with his strange, cryptic and beautiful Palme d'Or-winning "Uncle Boonme Who Can Recall Past Lives." The movie became a critical darling, and as much as a movie can that features fish sex, it brought the director to a broader international audience. But the filmmaker hasn't been in a hurry to make a followup, and over the past couple of years has been focused on art installations and shorts (including the rather tepid "Mekong Hotel" which played Cannes last year), but it looks like he's now ready to tackle another feature.
