    Beast of a political drama

    Life, Kanin Srimaneekulroj, Published on 09/09/2016

    » Ignore the giant, alien-looking kaiju on the film's posters; Shin Gojira (known in English as Godzilla Resurgence), a remake of the iconic 1954 film, is very much a relatively grounded political drama, trading in the spectacular giant-monster battles we've grown to expect of modern kaiju films for a more deliberate exploration of real-world politics, where indecision, unilateral national agendas and complicated bureaucratic protocols kill more innocent civilians than the titular kaiju ever could on its own.

    Political musings

    Life, Published on 11/01/2016

The public, especially those who have grown up observing the politics of the 1980s and 90s, remember him as "Doctor Sam Sri", which refers to the meaning of his name -- "the Thai flag with three colours". A true orator, Trirong's parliamentary debates were full of humour and gags and delivered in his signature thick southern accent. What sets him apart is not just his comical nature, but his relatively corruption-free image.
