BLANKET (2008, Tossapol Boonsinsukh, second viewing, A+++++)

This short film is a part of the feature film UNDER THE BLANKET. It contains one long static shot of a girl trying to draw two lines on a paper, then she erases them, and trying to draw them and erasing them again and again. This long static shot lasts almost 9 minutes, and we never see the face of the girl in this shot. We only see her from the neck down.

The scene in BLANKET (2008, Tossapol Boonsinsukh, A+++++) in the picture below seems to correspond to an empty parking lot scene in NICE TO MEET YOU (2005, Tossapol Boonsinsukh). In this scene in BLANKET, we hear a voiceover of a man, saying, "Monday. Begining on Monday. Tuesday, Wednesday. Thursday. Friday. Saturday. Sunday. Then returning to Monday."
