Twitter Capsule: Reader, I must confess I'm starting to find Weerasethakul tedious, as much as I admire his directorial craft.

VOR:   Burgeoning impatience aside, Weerasethakul works like no one else, making unique claims on viewers and, at his best, yielding indelible images like the glowing hospital lights.
