HAIKU (2009, Apichatpong Weerasethakul, A+)

I like the inexplicable quality of the second shot, and the homoerotic tinge of the third shot very much.

It is a part of VISION DU RÉEL:

" To commemorate the 15th anniversary of Visions du Réel, the festival has asked select filmmakers for the gift of images, in the form of cinematic haikus. Each short film in the Haiku series is comprised of “three shots to contemplate reality and to capture, in the manner of Japanese poems, the unforeseeable, fleeting eternity of a moment, to be discovered at the beginning of each projection.""

I discovered this film from Dave McDougall's Favorite Film of 2011 list:
