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.
12 Apr 2013 : The vast, wasted and elegantly desperate post-alien-invasion world is the setting of Joseph Kosinski's Oblivion. In the science-fiction film that opened in Thailand yesterday, Kosinski puts Tom Cruise in the role of Jack Harper, a patrolman and drone-fixer left to station Earth after everyone else has headed for the safe haven of Titan, Saturn's largest moon. Kosinski's debut feature in 2010 was Tron: Legacy, a film that picked up the hallucinatory imagination of sci-fi devotees nearly 30 years after the original.
12 Apr 2013 : The Korean filmmaker Kim Ki-duk has packed so much lurid material and high melodrama into his latest film, Pieta, that the weakness of its dramatic punch can't be chalked up to a lack of trying. The ease with which it can be shrugged off is especially intriguing because the performances and production values are so impressive.
09 Apr 2013 : Pee Mak Phra Kanong, a comedic version of the renowned Thai ghostly tale Mae Nak, has become so popular that acquiring decent seats for the show at cinemas in Bangkok is almost impossible without booking hours ahead.
09 Apr 2013 : HOLLYWOOD - Annette Funicello, the family-friendly actress and singer known for her time as an original Disney Mousketeer and star of the Beach Party films of the 1960s, has died at the age of 70.
08 Apr 2013 : Film is one of the most popular forms of entertainment and the underlying technology has gone through a dramatic evolution over the past 150 years or so. Nowadays the dominant mode is digital, but the history of film projection is like a multilayered canvas, each progression enabled by improvements in our ability to manually manipulate light and shadow.
07 Apr 2013 : Little finger letdown
05 Apr 2013 : The visual reference of the latest Khu Kam movie, our favourite love-amidst-Allied-bombing drama, is Japanese manga. Precisely the kind that features a gamine girl with extra-large eyes embroiled in a bickering, cruel flirtation with a smart, slim boy with extra-thick eyebrows and playful arrogance, preferably attired in a uniform. For a few minutes, it seems like an attempt at revisionism of a 48-year-old novel about a patriotic girl torn by her love of a dashing Japanese soldier as the Emperor's Army coaxes its passage through Siam during World War II. A shot at contemporarising a classic, so to speak, only that the outcome is closer to trivialising it.
05 Apr 2013 : Without any expectations, you'll find The Host a typical B-movie with some big names in it. But if you walk in with some sort of expectation, the film turns out to be quite a disappointment.
03 Apr 2013 : You can't escape Nadech Kugimiya. The guy's everywhere, from larger-than-life expressway billboards, magazine racks, television commercials, prime-time soaps to fried banana bags made out of old newspapers, Nadech's perfectly chiselled, flawless face is forever beaming at you like the sun and the moon combined.
03 Apr 2013 : The 10th moving image avatar of the character Angsumalin _ one of the most beloved in the canon of Thai literature _ is a naive girl who's no longer playing Chinese cymbalo but is instead an expert rower. Playing Angsumalin in the latest film version of Khu Kam is Oranate "Richy" D. Caballes, an 18-year-old professional badminton player from Chiang Mai. She will star opposite Nadech Kugimiya as the Thai woman who falls in love with the Japanese soldier Kobori during the chaos of World War II when the Emperor's Army marched through Siam.
