LAST LIFE IN THE UNIVERSE (pen-ek ratanaruang)! there's a muscle inside me that's stopped, i shhh'd it 20 minutes into the film and it hasn't moved sinced. what can i say, this movie puts that "lost in translation" to shame. welcome to thailand, meet kenji, a friendless neatfreak with a fetish for failed suicides, and noi, a thai hooker(?) with a rusty volkswagen and a constant cigarette. christopher doyle's camerawork swaaaays. the flick lingers, lingers, as if it's got a monday morning flight to catch but it just can't get itself off that couch.

shiiit, how many times did i sigh during that thing?
