    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.

    Life, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 12/06/2015

    » Even if awkward silences, nosey aunties and shameless pretentiousness is part of the package, it's still hard to not accept an invitation to an all-paid-for 10-day cruise to Greece. If anything, it's the much-awaited all-star cast of Dil Dhadakne Do (Let The Heart Beat) that makes you want to tag along, even if you want no part in their drama. Using an upper crust 30th wedding anniversary as the backdrop, director Zoya Akhtar serves up a condensed trip through every type of familial problem Indian families face in just under three hours.

    A surprise behind the door

    Life, Kong Rithdee, Published on 09/03/2018

    » The house sits deep in the woods, near a cemetery staked with tombstones. The family consists of a father, reeling in debt, and his four children, the eldest 22 and the youngest six. The mother is ill, ashen-faced, bedridden, and she'll jingle the brass bell in her hand to summon help. That jingling bell, and the apparition of a woman in a white gown in the mother's gloomy bedroom, will signal the cue of many jump-scares in the tale that unfolds.

    J-pop gone rogue

    B Magazine, Chanun Poomsawai, Published on 07/04/2019

    » Anyone who's been to Japan (or spent a decent amount of time on the internet) would have probably come across T-shirts with puzzling or badly translated English. Perusing CHAI's pastel-hued website gives you a similar experience except that everything actually makes sense -- "We Are New Exciting Onna (female) Band From Japan! NEO KAWAII ! COMPLEX IS ART!," its meta description announces. A click and a quick scroll down also give you an overview on the group's "NEO KAWAII" ethos, which essentially goes against any notions of the classic kawaii ("You don't need to have big eyes or have skinny legs to be KAWAII! There should be many more types of KAWAII, and everyone is KAWAII in her own way … Our insecurities make us who we are. The insecurities become art. KAWAII is a never-ending journey!").

    Mama's boy

    Life, Kong Rithdee, Published on 05/09/2014

    » Mining your own family for stories is a convenient and sometimes painful process. Vorakorn Ruetaivanichkul turned his camera toward his mother, who tried to commit suicide years ago. That pilot project later became a 60-minute film that mixes home movie footage, documentary re-enactment and fantasy sequences. Mother was Vorakorn's graduation film at King Mongkut's Institute of Technology Ladkrabang in 2010, and now it will be released at House RCA on Sept 11.
