THE 10-MINUTE RULE
Seats for advance ticket and pass holders are held until 10 minutes before showtime, when any unfilled seats are released to the public. Thus, advance tickets or passes ensure that you will not have to wait in the ticket purchase line but do not guarantee a seat in the case of arrival after the 10-minute window has begun. Your early arrival also helps get screenings started promptly. We appreciate your understanding. Advance ticket holders who arrive within the 10-minute window but are not seated may exchange their tickets for another screening at the Ticket Outlet or obtain a cash refund at the theater. There are no refunds or exchanges for late arrivals or for missed screenings.

Invisible Waves
DIRECTOR: PEN–EK RATANARUANG
THAILAND
Thai filmmaker Pen–ek Ratanaruang (Last Life in the Universe, PIFF 27) re–teams with cinematographer Christopher Doyle to produce an eccentric twist on the Japanese yakuza gangster genre in this eccentric meditation on the enigmatic, karmic patterns rippling through life. Starring Japanese heartthrob Asano Tadanobu, the plotline follows a furious and guilty sous–chef/hitman from Macau who makes a dash for Thailand after inadvertently killing his girlfriend. On arrival, he discovers there's no out–running his problems; in fact, they've now taken on sinister proportions. Assailed by minor indignities and malfunctioning amenities aboard a ship, people do die in his wake, but Pen–ek de–emphasizes the violence in favor of his unique brand of existential slapstick. "If Jacques Tati, the French comic absurdist, had ever made a gangster thriller, it probably would have looked like Invisible Waves."—The Hollywood Reporter. ( 115 min )


Filmography: Fun Bar Karaoke (97), 6ixtynin9 (99), Transistor Love Story (01), Last Life in the Universe (03).
