"I hardly dislike any film that I saw before I was 15. Each one—Star Crash, Cujo, Earthquake, Cannibal Holocaust, and so on—became one of my alltime favorites. But things changed. The theaters in my town were demolished, and I began to have more difficulty finding good films in multiplexes. I started to distrust cinema. Luckily, the films included here sustained the love. They were my new Evil Dead. They made my heart race and made me see the unlimited possibilities of the screen."

|Kathryn W. Davis Fellowship for International Understanding Through Film
Internationally acclaimed Thai filmmaker and visual artist Apichatpong
Weerasethakul completes his JBFC fellowship this month. During his two months here, he’s been busy attending screenings, discussing his work, and doing postproduction on a pair of short films. But we couldn’t let him leave without asking him to share with us this odd and fascinating mix of movies that mean so much to him.
