Stranger Says:

A neophyte filmmaker interviews an older woman about a legendary Thai student uprising, which then somehow segues into digressions on the nature of performance, a brief how-to about tobacco harvesting, and lots of cool shots of mushrooms. It makes more sense when you’re watching it. Honest. There’s a lot to unpack, certainly, but writer/director Anocha Suwichakornpong’s WTF tone poem of a film casts a bewitching spell, even/especially as it periodically reinvents itself. Intriguing and severely beautiful throughout, even during those moments when it seems like logic has taken a flyer. (ANDREW WRIGHT)
