Well I’ll be damned, it finally happened.

Thanks to IndieWire, we now know that the 2010 Palme d’Or winner, Apichatpong Weerasethakul’s film UNCLE BOONMEE WHO CAN RECALL HIS PAST LIVES has finally found a US distributor. The outlet is reporting that the much talked about film has been picked up by Strand Releasing, and will hit shores stateside in the spring of 2011. 

The film “follow[s] a man spending his final days surrounded by loved ones in the countryside,” and while the reviews coming out of Cannes haven’t been too over the top in their praise, the trailer looks breathtaking, and you really can’t go wrong with a Palme d’Or winner, at least when looking to make some sort of buzz. It seems to be a really challenging and confounding film, which is always a welcome diversion to regular spring garbage. Hopefully this will do just that, albeit next year.

Great news, but too long of a wait in my book.
