    Hail, Hollywood!

    Life, Kong Rithdee, Published on 04/03/2016

    » Funny but not that funny, smart and striving to be awfully smart, Hail, Caesar! belongs to the middleweight rank of the Coen brothers' catalogue. It's a movie about movie love, and about the woes of making movies, or at least studio movies, the constant pain of working in that carnivorous system in which its members nibble on one another, and in which the faceless bosses are taking the biggest bite. You can tell from the poster that this is a tribute to the old Hollywood of 1950s, but since this is a Coens' movie, it sprawls into satire, slapstick, musical numbers, and religious mockery, with a darker undercurrent of the post-war ideological theatre played out in the Californian backlot.

    Horror film does double duty as social satire

    Life, Kong Rithdee, Published on 07/04/2017

    » Hot on the trail of the Oscar-winning Moonlight and half-a-century after Katherine Hepburn gasped at her daughter's black fiancée in Guess Who's Coming to Dinner?, here comes Get Out, a "social thriller" about a black man trapped in a white horror. These weird white folk voted for President Obama -- they keep repeating that to assure themselves and others -- but their exaggerated civility is more creepy and menacing than ever in Trump-ruled America.

    Top 10 movies led by Moonlight, La La Land

    Life, Published on 19/12/2016

    » [1] Moonlight. The life of Chiron, the young man who grows up in three distinct chapters in Barry Jenkins' masterpiece, is hard and full of pain. And yet Moonlight is so abundant with transcendent moments of grace and lyrical splendour. In the film's blue-tinged darkness shines a tortured soul, one of the most intimately and fully realised ones I can remember encountering in a movie.

    Taking Off

    Life, Amitha Amranand, Published on 01/10/2015
