    All in the family

    Life, Kong Rithdee, Published on 14/06/2018

    » You know you're walking into a horror movie, but the brilliance of Ari Aster's Hereditary is the way it deftly hides its cards and stacks up mystery upon mystery, secret upon secret, madness upon madness, until everything unravels in demonic hellfire. The film ticks all the familiar elements of a ghost story -- a dead grandma, a spooky house, a grave robbery, a candlelit seance where spirits are summoned, a sleepwalker roaming the dim corridor, an occult sign written on the wall, a couple of headless corpses, etc -- but Hereditary rises above the genre formula with its coolly composed formalism, its deliberate pacing, and its sly psychological manipulation that almost convinces us at certain points that this is more of a domestic drama than a horror movie.

    » It's that time of year again. The time of year to get lost in European romance, tragedy, history, comedy and perhaps a little bit of all. If you've got the conviction and resources to catch all 17 films across 12 days, by all means carpe diem.

    Cannes and misdemeanours

    Life, Kong Rithdee, Published on 04/01/2015

    » At the 66th Cannes film Festival, off-screen drama attempts to steal the limelight from on-screen offerings. Last Friday, the news of a diamond robbery at a hotel room from which a burglar made off with US$1 million (about 30 million baht) worth of Chopard jewellery astonished (and amused) festival-goers; the crime took pace hours after the screening of Sofia Coppola's The Bling Ring, about brazen heists of celebrity homes.

    Men down the lens

    Life, Pimrapee Thungkasemvathana, Published on 21/03/2014

    » As a form of mass entertainment, films play a complex role in both influencing public perceptions and opinions, while also reflecting the cultural shifts of society. Consider the state of Thai gay-themed films since the commercial success of Iron Ladies (Satree Lek) in 2000, as well as other homosexual-related movies that have won international prizes or scored at the box office, and the issues of identity, representation and cinema all come together. Recently, Nitchapoom Chaianun's independently produced Pi Chai, My Bromance, about the development of love between a boy and his new brother adopted by the family, filled cinemas despite its limited release.

    Vacant homes and empty heads

    » Meet the Spring-break revellers from hell. Sometimes clad in Pussy Riot-style balaclavas, but most of the time in fluorescent bikinis, Faith (Selena Gomez), Candy (Vanessa Hudgens), Brit (Ashley Benson) and Cotty (Rachel Korine) orchestrate the year's most hallucinatory orgy to date, a candy-coloured bacchanalia of robbery, bong parties, contraband firearms, murders and a C-cup binge; all of this lubricated by endlessly flowing booze and a riotous beachside cacophony. Bored kids looking for gratifying oblivion, pushing and pushing and pushing the limit of fun. Spring Breakers is driven by the anxiety of excess, visually and psychologically, showing us how an American-style pursuit of happiness can edge pursuers over the cliff and into the sunshine of hell, where they feel right at home and become even more happy.

    » These prestidigitators pique our interest: four magicians with cocky talents put on a show in Las Vegas in which they transport a randomly picked member of the audience to a Paris bank and steal 3 million from its vault. Real money, of course, and the booty is distributed, falling like confetti from the ceiling, on to the viewers in the Las Vegas hall. Legerdemain or witchcraft? Hypnosis or illusion?
