Uncle Boonmee Trailer: Cannes-Approved Catfish Sex, Here at Last


A few weeks ago, Vulture premiered the beautiful, Chris Ware–designed poster for Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives, and now Strand has released the U.S. trailer for the Palme d'Or winner, out March 2 in New York. So what's it about? Nominally, it's a ghost story involving a dying man who's visited by the spirit of his dead wife, but as this trailer makes clear, there are a lot of other things going on, including monkey spirits with glowing red eyes, flashlight-led spelunking, and (most notorious) an interlude where a princess and catfish get it on. Don't worry: It's consensual, and they're both really into it. Someone's very specific fetishes have been tremendously satisfied today!
