Critics cold on Syndromes in Venice
Syndromes and a Century, the latest feature by Apichatpong Weerasethkul had its premiere on August 30 at the Venice Film Festival.
ThaiCinema.org has been kind enough to post reviews from Screen Daily and Variety, as well as a snazzy red-carpet photo of the director with his cast and backers.
I'm only glancing at the reviews because I don't want too read too much, but it looks like the critics are mystified and the reception at a press-screening is described as "cold".
But since this is an Apichatpong Weerasethakul film, these are all good signs. It could be his best work yet. Check it out, if you dare.
