Malila: The Farewell Flower

Malila: The Farewell Flower ★★★★

This is a film whose particular symbolic intricacies have probably escaped me due to my unfamiliarity with Buddhism and Thai spiritual culture, but in any case it's visually stunning, capturing beautiful and horrifying images with equally delicate and indulgent camerawork, and oozes intimacy and sensitivity and tenderness. Thai gay and trans filmmakers really don't let me down.
