best in show

i should be writing a post about lost and its final sendoff, but this just appeared in my newspaper this morning: unlce boonmee who can recall his last lives, a thai drama of sorts, just took the big prize at the cannes film festival. i don't know much about the festival, or what sorts of awards it gives out, or even how to pronounce its ostentatious name, but its interesting to see a thai film get accolades. thai cinema definitely has its own feel - especially their bigger name films (last life in the universe, beautiful boxer, 6ixteynin9.) i've always been impressed with the cinematic quality, even with some of the lesser known thai films (their horrors, comedies, etc.)

here is a link to an article about the prize:
