Mysterious Object at Noon, dir. Apichatpong Weerasethakul, Thailand 2000, 85 min., Thai with English subtitles
Winner of the 2010 Cannes Palme d’Or, Thai artist and filmmaker Apichatpong Weerasethakul is recognised as one of contemporary cinema’s most unique voices.
Mysterious Object at Noon is his hallucinatory debut feature, an extraordinary mix of experimental documentary and fiction that wends its way through the landscapes and mindscapes of rural Thailand. The film is structured as a surrealist game; a small film-crew travel the Thai countryside asking people they encounter along the way to invent the next chapter of a story. The daisy-chain structure of interlocking vignettes – alternately fantastical, comic and workaday – bridge documentary realism and the avant-garde, resulting in a boldly original debut that looks and feels like nothing else.
