Apichatpong #1, or: Studies in Verticality

Empire - Andy Warhol, 1964, 16mm

Blissfully Yours - Apichatpong Weerasethakul, 2002, 35mm


Back to primitive: the filmmaker himself is the DP, he doesn't even operate the camera - just walks away. It's like the camera was seeing for itself.

--Apichatpong, 2007.

I remember Alexis talking to me about you, referring this entry you made, which he thought was inspired. We had a bunch of laughs out of it.
