    Beautifully filmed and mysterious, "Last life" leaves you with more questions than when the film starts, but it feels good to wonder about a movie like this. The characters are bent and bruised, but seem, in their own twisted ways, to be doing something about it. Whether it means planning a suicide, cleaning fastidiously, or learning Japanese to leave your deplorable situation, they are Beautifully filmed and mysterious, "Last life" leaves you with more questions than when the film starts, but it feels good to wonder about a movie like this. The characters are bent and bruised, but seem, in their own twisted ways, to be doing something about it. Whether it means planning a suicide, cleaning fastidiously, or learning Japanese to leave your deplorable situation, they are trying. A surprising movie, and more proof to me that great art is coming out of Thailand. Expand

    It recovers from an opening that's a little oblique to grow progressively more seductive as the two lost central characters become entwined.

    It's hard to know what's really happening in the movie versus what's merely running through the characters' heads, and the poignant final shot muddies the picture even more, raising the question of just when (or if) the story jumps from real to imaginary.

    Cheeky and elusive, Last Life in the Universe inhabits a high-lonesome world unto itself, a bright daydream that dissipates in the aching gap of a missed connection.
