Age of Dreaming novel by Nina Revoyr  "The Age of Dreaming: A Novel" [2008] by Nina Revoyr
Jun Nakayama was a star in the Silent Era who quit his career abruptly and became a recluse; when a journalist tracks him down forty years later, the interviews trigger memories of the joy of acting, the parties and excitement, the mysterious death of his favorite director, subtle and not-so-subtle racism, and secrets that he has kept for decades; while the tale appears to be a roman á clef, reviews suggest a work of deep insight into the human character.

Singapore poster for "Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives" 2010 movie from Thailand   Begun from a 1983 book about a Northern Thai peasant who claimed to recall past lives, the project morphed into an exercise about the death of film itself (as opposed to digital), bringing in elements from old movies, comic books, and Thai television. The actual story is a surreal mix of Boonmee's past memories and regrets, and visits from the ghost of his wife, and by his lost son in non-human form.
