Did You Know?

Bank:Flaming fag? Let me tell you guys a joke.
Dao:Yeah...go ahead
Bank:A fag with piles walks into a Doctor's office. The Doctor asks him to wash his ass and then bend over. The Doctor pokes his finger into the guy's ass to find out what's wrong. The fag speaks with happy voice: "Take off your ring or I'll get hurt." The Doctor smiles and says: "It's close to my watch." Ha ha ha...the watch...isn't it funny?
Girl:I didn't get it.

I struggled to understand it, 24 March 2004
Author: eVissa ( from sheffield, england

the photography was beautiful but i had difficulty understanding what was happening... was there a lot of symbolism?... the 2 goldfishes - do they mean something in Thai culture? there's not much plot, not much happens and it just meanders along. no real start, no real middle and no real end. rather unsatisfying really.

It was difficult to get into the characters as you never felt you got to know was difficult to know which scenes were imaginary and which were real. The move felt chaotic and disjointed. I don't know what the pang brothers were hoping to achieve. Maybe if I were Thai it would make more sense...

Was the above review useful to you?
