Watch: Award-Winning Thai Film 'Uncle Boonmee' Official Trailer
Oh no - the Ghost Monkeys are finally here! Strand Releasing has debuted an official US trailer on Apple for the Palme d'Or winning Thai film Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives - yep that is the full title for it, too. Now everyone finally gets to see what I've been talking about all along with these damn Ghost Monkeys and catfish and all the weird shit that happens in this. I watched half this film in Cannes last year (and walked out of the rest) and I couldn't even make sense of what I saw, so good luck making sense of this trailer. Here's a synopsis to help: On his deathbed, Uncle Boonmee, recalls his many past lives. Enjoy!

This premiered at the 63rd Cannes Film Festival last year and won the most prestigious jury award at the festival, the Palme d'Or, or Golden Palm. Strand Releasing will be bringing Uncle Boonmee to very limited theaters starting on March 2nd this winter. Hope you guys enjoyed watching this trailer. Anyone interested in this?
