Time Out

Some will find it a bit muted, but those attuned to the quiet desolation of an Antonioni or Hou Hsiao-Hsien will find much to admire. A welcome discovery.

It's all rather familiar but well done.

This artsy romancer is well performed but suffers from muddled, meandering plotting.

An enjoyable Thai drama with a poignant message, Hi-So has a notable script and some admirable performances, but the slow pacing and lack of spark in the second act can make it a little arduous to watch.

The List

For most of its seemingly interminable running time the bored-looking protagonist sits in his apartment possibly thinking about something or nothing.

"Hi-So" has ideas but no place pressing to go.

Mike McCahill

An oddly cleansing, even affirming experience.

Assarat's freeform film is sometimes tantalising if noodle-baking stuff. If you can divine its meaning, take the rest of the year off.
