Episode notes

The new film from Apichatpong Weerasethakul isn’t just a movie – it’s a perpetual roadshow, with plans to keep showing the movie from theater to theater indefinitely (check out where it’s showing for the next few months). It made a lot of best-of 2021 lists and now that the show is finally on the road, our gang weighs in, joined by LA Times film critic Justin Chang.
