Interview: Apichatpong Weerasethakul Wants To Work With Chiara Mastroianni & Joan Allen

Also Downplays Tilda Swinton Collaboration, Loves David Fincher But Not 'Social Network' With the latest season of Cannes coming close to an end, what better time than look back at last year's Golden Palm winner? Apichatpong Weerasethakul took home the top prize with his latest experimental narrative, "Uncle Boonme Who Can Recall Past Lives," an incredibly dense feature that delved into traditional Thai spirituality, contemporary regional politics, lost media, and multiple realities including the film medium itself.
