    On unhappy women and clumsy hitmen

    Life, Kong Rithdee, Published on 19/01/2018

    » Pen-ek Ratanaruang's movies -- eight of them in the past 20 years and the ninth slated for a Feb 1 release -- are often inhabited by unhappy women and clumsy hitmen.

A genre geek, Pen-ek likes crime thrillers, but one of Thailand's best-known directors is also a diligent investigator of human relationships and man-woman dynamics, their eccentric and mysterious rapport and misunderstandings that determine the course of the world, and of cinema.

    Soundtrack to a troubled generation

    Life, Apipar Norapoompipat, Published on 16/01/2018

    » Having already attended two Imagine Dragons concerts in Bangkok (one being Marriott Marquis' private event), expectations were sky-high for their Evolve World Tour gig which took place last Thursday at Impact Challenger Hall. The band's Smoke and Mirrors Tour back in 2015 was possibly one of the best performances of the year, so many questions arose. Would they be as energetic as the previous rounds? Would their set list be as long? Is frontman Dan Reynolds going to wear elephant patterned harem pants again? And although the set only lasted an hour-and-a-half and Reynolds only wore simple black trousers, the Grammy-winning Los Angeles-based alt-arena-rock band still soared through the night, giving an adrenaline-inducing yet heartfelt performance.

    Come into my parlour

    Muse, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 30/12/2017

    » Gone is the midnight-blue vortex of twinkly stars and mystical allure that personifies the Matina Amanita jewellery boutique at Central Embassy. In its place now sits the amped-up and edible world of Sretsis. Sretsis Parlour, which recently celebrated its grand opening last week, is the Sretsis sisters' latest brainchild, which serves fantasy on a plate: the taste of Sretsis is nothing short of Blossom Baby cakes, heart puffs and intricately printed fine bone china -- all to be nibbled in a place where, from floor to ceiling, not a single inch is unadorned or boring to look at.
