Mattie Do’s The Long Walk is a real achievement. It manages to bend all the rules of the time travel subgenre to great effect. Do has created some fantastic entries into the horror and sci-fi genre with both Chanthaly, Dearest Sister.
If you happen to be a fan of the headiness and brilliance of Christopher Nolan’s films, you are going to be a fan of Do’s The Long walk.
The synopsis for The Long Walk goes like this:
An old scavenger living on the fringes of a near-future society exploits a ghostly companion’s ability to traverse time, hoping to prevent his mother’s suffering from a terminal illness.
The film stars Yannawoutthi Chanthalungsy, Vilouna Phetmany, Por Silatsa, Noutnapha Soydara, Chanthamone Inoudome, and Vithaya Sombath.
