This Cannes Palm d’Or winner secured Weerasethakul reputation as a master filmmaker, though the win was also not without some controversy.  In this film of high aesthetics, an old Thai farmer, Uncle Boonmee, is dying from kidney failure.  In these last days of his imperfect life, the veil between the mundane and the spirit world recedes bringing the dead and memories of past existences into the present.  “ (the) aura of the uncanny—the spirit life entering the everyday—is strangely affecting” The New Yorker.
