Invisible Waves coverage from Berlin
Invisible Waves premiered on Tuesday at the Berlin Film Festival, and while I'm careful to not read too much of the reviews of the film, I can't help but come across some reports.
The Hollywood Reporter's Kirk Honeycutt says: "If Jacques Tati had ever made a gangster thriller, it probably would have looked like Pen-Ek Ratanaruang's Invisible Waves."
GreenCine snarks that Invisible Waves "has its moments. For me, those moments are a little too few and far between."
Deutsche Presse-Agentur (via the Bangkok Post) talked to Pen-Ek, who said he chose his actors on their ability to speak English badly.
Kaiju Shakedown has posted a link to the Variety review.
Kung Fu Cult Cinema has a link to Pen-Ek's press conference in Berlin.
Meanwhile, Twitch has posted a link to another trailer, this one apparently being the Thai version.
And yeah, the film has its Thai premiere at the Bangkok International Film Festival, but it's still going to be awhile before I actually get to see it, so I'm averting my eyes when I come across much more news about the film.
