Don't be fooled by the mildly pretentious title, it is actually a soundtrack compilation from Thai director Weerasethakul's movies. If you've noticed, too, he has a common pleasantly natural theme within his various perceptions of wildlife. Of course, that does show in "Metaphors" as we get a contained insight to how he presents the meditative essence - ranging from sound collages, wind instruments and textured synthesizers.
The director's soundscapes are one of the few things in the world, including his films, to place me in a meditative trance, an introspective haze of Thai folklore, gay tigers, sleeping soldiers, and hospital pipes.
