    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.

    » A robust line-up of films is coming to us in HeForShe Arts Week Bangkok Film Festival. Organised by UN Women, next week's festival has selected films with messages on gender equality -- or inequality -- and unfair treatment of women in different cultures (not just in the "Third World" countries, to be sure). It sounds heavy, but the good thing is that the titles picked for the event this year are entertaining and heartfelt on top of being socially relevant.


    Women aren't dumb

    Life, Bernard Trink, Published on 16/12/2016

    » Men have the notion that women aren't as bright as they are -- it's in the genes or something, can't be helped -- and that they are the easier to fool.
