22 May 2013 : Cambodian director Rithy Panh's new documentary film pays tribute to and questions the power of image. With a tender, evocative and self-reflective tone, the film is about images that can be shown and that cannot, that should be seen and that should not, that are lost and that are found, that are touchable and that are invisible, that are ethically dubious and that are movingly, irredeemably personal.
22 May 2013 : At the 66th Cannes film Festival, off-screen drama attempts to steal the limelight from on-screen offerings. Last Friday, the news of a diamond robbery at a hotel room from which a burglar made off with US$1 million (about 30 million baht) worth of Chopard jewellery astonished (and amused) festival-goers; the crime took pace hours after the screening of Sofia Coppola's The Bling Ring, about brazen heists of celebrity homes.
21 May 2013 : Sitting in the courtyard of the Carlton Hotel in Cannes, Chinese filmmaker Jia Zhangke talks about violence _ the violence in his new movie that is riding a wave of critical favour at the world's biggest film festival, and the real violence back in his home country where the unstoppable motor of progress has brought on many changes, good and otherwise.
20 May 2013 : The hottest ticket in Cannes over the weekend is, surprisingly, a pre-Bob Dylan tale of a struggling folk singer steeped in his own hilarious myth: "Inside Llewyn Davis" is the new film by Joel and Ethan Coen starring Oscar Isaac as the title character, with the supporting act by Carey Mulligan (redeeming herself quite nicely from the nonsense of "The Great Gatsby", which opened Cannes last Wednesday) and Justin Timberlake, among others.
19 May 2013 : Spirited Away
18 May 2013 : Good year? Bad year? Average year? The question is common, extraneous, and yet on everyone’s lips after three days into the 66th Cannes Film Festival.
17 May 2013 : Not many new faces can make an impressive debut, but 19-year-old Jirayu "James" Tangsrisuk shines as Khun Chai Puttiphat in the Suparbburuth Chutathep period drama series on Channel 3.
17 May 2013 : This is not unexpected. Baz Luhrmann's modus operandi is never subtlety, and his milking of whatever slim, tenuous, ephemeral material cheerfully goes for full bombast. So The Great Gatsby, enjoyable though not so great, magnifies what F Scott Fitzgerald's book only hints, stresses what's only sprinkled, exteriorises what's inside the mind and in the process makes us see more and probably feel less. A fitting opener of the Cannes Film Festival on Wednesday _ and in cinemas across the world this week _ the film revels in excess and almost forgets that all of this is supposed to be a cautionary tale.
16 May 2013 : From this week, alongside more common languages such as French, English, Arabic and Chinese, Bing Translator users will also be able to convert text to and from Klingon.
16 May 2013 : CANNES, France - One of the great mysteries is how you judge movies.
15 May 2013 : Thailand's leading cinema operators, Major Cineplex and SF Cinema Group, insist they will hold ticket prices at current levels, and claim their popcorn is expensive because it is imported.
15 May 2013 : Cannes Film Festival opens today with Baz Luhrmann's The Great Gatsby, and for the next 12 days the Mediterranean resort town on the French Riviera plays host to the 66th edition of the world's most respected, most influential and most circus-like cine-jamboree. Stars, filmmakers, industry bigwigs and journalists congregate for the annual pilgrimage that celebrates, sanctifies and commercialises cinema to an extent that's both astounding and puzzling.
