    A flavourful trek to new heights

    Guru, Nimarta Narang, Published on 24/11/2017

    » Imagine having appetisers in one setting, the main course in another and desserts in a third. Sounds like quite an adventurous night, right? Centara Grand at CentralWorld is offering such a night featuring three different restaurants for their progressive dinner special: UNO MAS, Red Sky and CRU Champagne Bar. As you progress through the meal, you go up in height as well. Starting on the 54th floor, each course takes you a few floors up. The ambience for all of the restaurants is fancy and classy whilst providing you with excellent views of Bangkok's skyline. The progressive dinner, priced at B2,999++ per person, allows you to experience all three restaurants in one night. It's guaranteed that you'll be able to take amazing photographs, but your Instagram feed shouldn't be the only thing satisfied.

    » Everything changes. It changes in its own time.Cells die. Cells grow. Death and birth happen all the time.Like the mind, it's gone before you even know. Like when I project a movie, a reel of film rotating at high speed looks like a still image.

    A new vision on Siam's enduring symbol

    Life, Kong Rithdee, Published on 26/04/2017

    » The elephant and the man, walking down the road to redemption and encountering the wounded and the marginalised, the madmen and the prostitutes. In the film Pop Aye, which will kick off Bangkok Asean Film Festival 2017 this evening (see sidebar), the fine-tusked beast accompanies the lost soul as the duo find their way home from Bangkok to the Northeast.

    Colourful journey into Thailand's soul

    Life, Kong Rithdee, Published on 20/01/2017

    » The train clangs ahead, moving people and dreams, as it has done since 1893. In Railway Sleepers, a minutely observed film shot entirely on-board a Thai train, we see kids on school trips, young men travelling north and south, hawkers selling food and horoscope books, families and lovers, vacationers who turn the sleeping car into a party venue. They're passengers, and they're also humans. They are, as director Sompot Chidgasornpongse says, a collection of faces that make up a portrait of Thailand.

    Doc lovers rejoice!

    Life, Kong Rithdee, Published on 18/03/2016

    » It is high time for audiences who appreciate the rough-edged reality of documentary films. Of the five nominees of the Oscar for best documentary feature, three had a regular release in Bangkok cinemas (Amy, Cartel Land, The Look of Silence), something unthinkable a few years ago when no distributor wanted to risk showing non-fiction films in cinemas. Now there is almost always at least one documentary film at SF CentralWorld, with the initiation of the independent outfit Documentary Club (in the programme now is The Hunting Ground, about rape crimes in American universities).

    Will the best films win the Oscars?

    Life, Kong Rithdee, Published on 26/02/2016

    » The Oscar night is also the Oscar-bashing night. It was always the night (or morning, in our time zone) of constant bemoaning and condescension, because the Academy voters, like most voters, always get it wrong, at least to million others around the world who believe, in our collective delirium, that we have a stake in this pageant taking place somewhere in Los Angeles. Things have taken a turn for the worse with the snap judgement made possible by social media; now the outrage and disbelief are so raw since they're aired in real time, on Facebook and Twitter, like I did last year when I was convinced that it was against every law of nature that Birdman, a well-crafted display of pretension and self-obsession, won over the more delicate Boyhood.
