They've stepped up the weird. Ken Levine is definitely drifting into Terry Gilliam territory – in a really good way. When the little girl reaches her hands into the dead horse's head and pulls open the dimension, and suddenly you're in a 1980s street scene – alternate 1983 – with Tears for Fears playing and "Revenge of the Jedi" playing at a movie theatre, and then she closes it back up and you're back on the floating city in the sky… I mean, that was like, what the fuck just happened?
For his next film, Thai auteur Pen-Ek Ratanaruang returns to his Tarantino roots.
Tul, a hitman, is shot in the head during an assignment. He awakens from a coma to find that he sees everything upside down – literally. His new affliction complicates his job, and his past begins to catch up with him.
I expect it to premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival in September.
Idea: An Evening with Tracy and Nyjer Morgan.
