Mysterious Object at Noon (2000)

Directed by Apichatpong Weerasethakul
My rating: 2 stars out of 4
IMDb Wikipedia
(DVD, Plexifilm)

Attempt to transfer the surrealist "exquisite corpse" technique to cinema mostly fails. The camera roams around various Thai locations in search of storytellers, but with no story to tell quickly descends into meaninglessness. Sensing this, the camera eventually turns on the filmmakers themselves, exposing their egocentric motives. They occasionally luck into some moments and the black and white photography is pleasing, but hardly worth a feature film.
