After the weirdness of The Sky Trembles and the Earth is Afraid and the Two Eyes Are Not Brothers (2015), Krabi, 2562 sees a lightness and playfulness wedded to Ben Rivers’ usual attributes. Thai director Anocha Suwichakornpong’s striking debut Mundane History (2009) moved easily from the domestic to the cosmic and here, among this film’s multiple narratives, the film glides through earnest tourists, mythology, prehistoric presences and vanishing location scouts from commercial shoots. As tantalisingly elusive as the film remains it feels so much like a love letter to a place that exists simultaneously on several planes. DOM
