I Heart Isaan

Congratulations to Khun Apichat Weerasethakul for winning the Palme d'Or at Cannes with his movie set in Isaan, the impoverished province of the red protesters gunned down by an army under orders. 

The definition of a coincidence is you weren't paying attention the first time round.

Check out his other movie "Tropical Malady" if the Joycian style is tough for you. Otherwise just feel it. Thinking is superfluous.
