71. BLISSFULLY YOURS
dir. Apichatpong Weerasethakul
world premiere 2002
U.S. release 2004
Because the second half is so saturated with sex, the way I recognize real people having it, lying about it, hoping for it, and talking
about it. Lest one forget, the first half is just as flawlessly wry and truthful about work, bureaucracy, and the mundane world
of errands. The linking strength is the shrewd handle on human behavior and the playful manipulation of film form.
