    The skin I live in

    Life, Kong Rithdee, Published on 11/01/2019

    » The body is a temple. But it can also be a torture chamber, from which escape, while possible, is soul-crushing. Lukas Dhont's Girl is an emphatic, moving story about Lara (Victor Polster), a Belgian trans teen at an elite ballet school who's going through male-to-female gender reassignment. That she has to contend with her own hormones and pre-assigned biological specifics, as well as the fact that her chosen career mandates extreme rigour in how the body should bend and behave, Lara's fight is nothing short of heroic. And in that vein, the film is as well.

    Fierce and pitiful

    Life, Kong Rithdee, Published on 20/03/2019

    » Krasue is a Thai ghost beside whom vampires -- and other blood-lusting Western monsters -- pale in comparison. Basically a detached head of a woman floating around in the dark, lit up by a phosphorescent glow from her still-beating heart, and with her bloody entrails dangling below the head like an infested creeper, krasue feeds on, naturally, filth, blood, corpses and carcasses. Sometimes it's compared, for the sake of convenience, with Gothic-era will-o'-the-wisp or jack-o'-lantern. But seriously, please, that is a gross under-characterisation that discounts the supreme grotesqueness of krasue, born by the pulpy fantasy of our equatorial folklorists.

    Revolutionary's road

    Life, John Clewley, Published on 02/04/2019

    » Poet, novelist, piano player. And that was before Gil Scott-Heron had reached 20. He wrote and recorded his best known song, The Revolution Will Not Be Televised, in 1971, and from then on produced a unique and polemical body of prose, poetry and music that led him to be dubbed the "Father of Political Rap", the originator of "nu soul" and many more titles. He preferred being called a "bluesologist".

    Life, Melalin Mahavongtrakul, Published on 15/03/2019

    » A teen love triangle and the supernatural collide in Saeng Krasue (Inhuman Kiss), the reimagining of a well-known Thai folktale set in the era of World War II. A rural village is under a mysterious attack and the locals whisper the words of krasue -- a woman by day, and a ghostlike creature by night -- who leaves her body at home while her head and internal organs fly out the window to devour raw flesh. The condition is contagious through saliva.

    Aestheticising a stigma

    Life, Published on 18/10/2018

    » Five years ago, at the age of 51, businessman Thanakorn "Chai" Telan decided to drop everything and pursue his passion for the fine arts. Using the camera as his tool of trade, Thanakorn found beauty in light, shadow and the female form. Taking mysterious and dreamlike photographs which inadvertently pay homage to the masters of nude like Ralph Gibson, Man Ray and Edward Weston, Thanakorn's photography led to him being featured in international publications as well as exhibitions in countries like France, Italy and Argentina. Today, his body of work -- under the exhibition name "Papillon" -- can be seen in Charoen Nakhon's The Jam Factory from now until Oct 28.
