It surprisingly takes an international film community (coin coming from several sources) to keep Palme d’Or winner Thai Joe (Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives) in business of feature filmmaking but it takes very little to motivate him as an artist: his generous output is visible in art installations, short films, to medium-sized items such as Mekong Hotel. While this appears to raid from his chest of films from his last decade and certainly brings a vague sense of familiarity with performance, obsessions, and use of physical borders, Cemetery of Kings might be the last of film to come out of a certain comfort zone.

Gist: A small town in Thailand, twenty-seven soldiers come down with a strange case of sleeping sickness. »
