rain Bard wrote:Eric, somewhat coincidentally I count Decasia as 2002, as that's the year I saw it at the SFIFF. I saw Light is Calling at this year's fest and it would probably make my shorts list if I'd extended it to more than three. It didn't blow me away like Decasia did though, largely due to the score, I think.

Yeah, officially I will end up slotting Decasia in '02, but I believe that '04 represents the first screening of the film in Minneapolis, so I'll leave it in for the moment, especially since I can't quite justify having Light is Calling stand alone up at the top. You didn't like the music for Light, eh? I'll admit that it might come off a bit, well, light next to Gordon's score for Decasia, but I think its saccharine effervescence is a perfect fit for what I see as the Rebirth/Paradiso epilogue to Decasia's Death/Inferno. They compliment each other so well that I hate to separate them for the sake of filing the latter away with other shorts.

Apichatpong's first feature is Mysterious Object at Noon and is available on US DVD. It was well-recieved at the 2000 Rotterdam Film Festival, and that basically first put him on the international film map. I was living in Thailand at that time, but I didn't hear about him until I was back in the states in 2001. (I only saw four Thai films while I was living in Thailand- due to my fear of unsubtitled movies and weak Thai language skills)

Blissfully Yours is not available on video in the US. There is a French disc with no English subtitles, and a Thai disc that's censored and, from what I hear, already rather rare. Keep your eye peeled for screenings, is all I can recommend.

Tropical Malady will have some kind of a wider release through Strand next year, supposedly.
