    Life, Kong Rithdee, Published on 05/10/2018

    » Asia's premier cine-event took off last night. The 23rd Busan International Film Festival once again draws all attention to the South Korean port city as it hosts the annual showcase of films, especially Asian films. One part to promote the South Korean film industry -- a formidable machine of creativity and commerce -- and one part to reign as a centre of filmmaking activity in this part of the world, Busan has gone through some bumps, political and managerial, but remains steadfast in being in the biggest in Asia.

    Life, Kong Rithdee, Published on 27/03/2015

    » In the documentary Y/Our Music, the rustic soundscape of the Northeast clashes with the hipster cool of Bangkok's indie music scene.

    A star is reborn

    Life, Tatat Bunnag, Published on 12/10/2018

    » Why is everyone talking about A Star Is Born? Partly because it's a musical romantic drama that has been retold so many times in Hollywood (now, as well as in 1976, 1957, 1937). It's also because the film features two of the best-known faces in the film and music worlds: Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga. The film has already gathered Oscar buzz, especially surrounding the speculation that the two leads would receive matching nominations.

    Sometimes transcendental, always relevant

    Life, Kong Rithdee, Published on 25/05/2018

    » The American films were on short supply this year at Cannes -- which in turn deprived the assembly line of red carpet material -- but nobody seemed to mind that except, well, some American media and fashion bloggers. That superfluous caveat aside, the recently wrapped 71st Cannes Film Festival was nearly unanimously praised as one of the best editions in recent memory, with a string of good, sometimes very good, titles playing night after night -- and even the bad films weren't so offensively bad, as was often the case.
